Draw Art Fair

The first edition of Draw Art Fair took place in 2019 in the iconic Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, London. It is the only fair in the UK entierely dedicated to drawing. It thus showcases modern and contemporary artworks by renowned artists as well as by still undiscovered ones. Another key point is the international influence of the show. Indeed, there are more than 60 participating galleries, coming not only from the UK but from the rest of Europe as well. Beyond the drawings themselves, they have the freedom to exhibit related pieces like paintings, sculptures, photos or videos that create a dialogue. That being said, drawings have to represent about 70% of the core artwork. In brief, Draw Art Fair is on track to become a not-to-be-missed event for all the drawing enthusiasts and collectors. Its Director Robert Sandelson holds also the British Art Fair.

Insights Draw Art Fair

Lee Cavaliere

Robert Sandelson

Fair Director

What would you say is the DNA of Draw Art Fair?

DRAW grows out of a long tradition of collecting works by the finest modern and contemporary artists. Founded by Laurent Boudier who earlier started Drawing Now in Paris, the fair’s essence is its close link to the acts of creation that are the hand tools of all creativity.

What type of galleries are chosen to exhibit, and why?

Galleries with passion for drawing.

What is the price range of pieces? Who is the average buyer?

£50-100,000. Collectors come to feel the richness of artistic creation offered. The barrier to owning is low and we see buyers from everywhere.

“The fair’s essence is its close link to the acts of creation that are the hand tools of all creativity.”
