The Other Art Fair, devoted to underrepresented artists, was jump-started by Ryan Stanier in London eight years ago. Clearly Mr. Stanier has come up with a winning formula as he now commands seven fairs globally; overall attendance is 200,000 with 20,000 sales, he said. “Not every one can plunk down $30,000 for a painting, but we spotlight superb unrecognized talent at budget prices,” Mr. Stanier said. Fairgoers also get to meet the artists.
Of the 130 artists, 60 percent are women. Marianne Hendriks, whose work has been featured in Vogue Netherlands, is bringing her enticing botanical paintings while the photographer Xan Padron is showing color-saturated images of street scenes, and one shot in Beijing is $495.
