The Russian, Eastern & Oriental Fine Art Fair is the first event of its kind devoted entirely to fine art from the East. From contemporary paintings to Byzantine icons and Oriental antiques, the Fair unites dealers and collectors from across the world with a stunning array of the finest works produced by craftsmen and artists over the last millennium.
With London now established as the principle city for Russian, Indian,
Oriental and Middle Eastern art auctions and home to a wealth of serious
collectors, the Fair attracts numerous Russian, Arab, Indian, Chinese and
Japanese businessmen, collectors and oligarchs the world over.
Reflecting the latest enthusiasm in London for art from the former Persia, India, China, Korea and Vietnam, specialist galleries will show a stunning mix of traditional and modern fine art from these regions. Contemporary paintings will hang alongside perennially-popular items such as Chinese and Japanese ceramics, laquer objets d’art, metalwork, furniture, sculpture, paintings and woodblock prints.
Russian art has been of the best worldwide investments over the last decade, with annual appreciation of up to 300% for some artists. In recent years, Chinese art has soared in popularity and value – boosted by the country’s soaring economy. Art from the Middle East and Asia is now emerging in a similar fashion, fuelled by major sales of Arab, Iranian and Indian fine art at the major auction houses. There is a real dynamism in this sector, with young Eastern and Asian artists emerging onto the international stage. In London, exhibitions of Korean and Vietnamese art hang alongside the traditional offerings from Japan. Charles Saatchi has recently showcased a major exhibition of Middle-Eastern art and is seeking to open a gallery in the United Arab Emirates. Indian art is as popular as ever, with prices rising as the Indian economy grows and Japanese art is showing a resurgence following a dip in this market over recent years.
Working with our partners – including The Ritz Club, The St. Petersburg Ball, The Russian Summer Ball, major media partners and other fair organisers – we aim to attract the highest quality clientele.
Complimentary tickets to the Fair are available on request.
