If you have been to the renown Art Basel, you would not be alone in finding it overwhelming, confusing, albeit intriguing. Londoner, Ryan Stanier felt the same, his experiences at Art Basel and other prestigious art fairs led him to believe there was a need for an alternative to the high-end, glossy, money-dominated events. So, a few years ago, Ryan founded The Other Art Fair which has become the leading artist fair to discover and buy directly from the very best emerging artistic talent. With fairs strongly established in the US, UK, and Australia, The Other Art Fair has grown with editions now in London, Bristol, Sydney, Melbourne, and now New York. Ryan Stanier joins Life Elsewhere to help us understand art today and, The Other Art Fair.
