The Other Art Fair helped add credibility to my work and business as a whole. Working with trusted brands such as Saatchi art helped build my portfolio and create social media awareness. Engaging face to face with my customers was a real highlight and helped me gain more sales.

There's no other place to get in front of this number of eyeballs! Such great exposure to the public - TOAF provides an opportunity not only to sell, but to talk about my work with people who are interested in what I do - which in turn helps me understand it better. 

Nicole Law, Melbourne 2019

What a great way to have a short, sharp, powerful means to be skin to skin with buyers of my work (as opposed to a long-drawn-out exhibition!) great volume of guests and top class exhibitors...highly recommended.
