Brisbane Art Expo 2012 -Review

A creative enthusists dream hub for inspiration. To see as a collective what Brissie artists are creating -painting. For an art expo 95% of the art was paintings. A mix of oil and acrylic. The trend was medium to large contemporary textured paintigs of semi realistic imagery. There were a mix of genres, not one stood out more from the rest (cityscapes, amimals portraits, whimiscal fantasy etc). The colours were vivid and exaggerated in saturation.

This expo was an affordable art fair. Only a few extra large paintings were over the $1000 mark and small to medium paintings ranged from $200-$500.

Some stalls tried attention grabbing tactics by placing bowls of lollies on their stand. Another had  kiddies corner and others were selling merchandise or products.

The expo was a bit smaller than expected however a good range of exhibits. And the love vintgage show was on too which you had the benefit of seeing too.

The art expo is definately for well defined artists in their practice. It was like having a mini gallery exhibition. And with all the art, those showing bodies of work stood out stronger than random pieces.
