ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The Chelsea Art Fair is a real magnet for connoisseurs in search of new discoveries, the bouyant and chic boutique fair has formed a reputation as the London art fair that brings first class Modern and Contemporary art to the heart of Chelsea, with a particular focus on three-dimensional art.

35 of the most respected modern and contemporary galleries from around the UK will be showcasing original works from the past 50 years by a wide selection of artists of varied disciplines.

Items typically range from £500 to £50,000, with some exceptional sculptures exceeding that.  Many of the works are being shown for the first time in London.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

This year the Chelsea Art Fair will feature a special project space dedicated to legendary musicians inspired by the King’s Road - the most influential road in the world which became synonymous with fashion, music and art in the 60s and 70s. There will be a special selling exhibition of sculptures, paintings and photography of musicians who were all part of the King's Road's hey-day and continue to make the road an iconic part of popular culture.

Guy Portelli, who won BBC's Dragons' Den in 2008 with his idea of creating sculptures of music icons, is the brain child behind the project. He will bring some of his favourite sculptures to the Fair – all with a strong link to the King's Road music scene - the Sex Pistols, The Who, David Bowie, John Lennon, Elton John and more.

To commemorate the first anniversary of Prince's death, Guy will also be unveiling his latest work - using a Corvette car bonnet as a foundation, Guy's sculpture captures the spirit of Prince and his music. 

Music photographer Martyn Goddard, who was very much part of the King's Road scene and photographed The Jam, will also be taking part in the project.

Photography by Charles Everest, featuring images of Jimi Hendrix and The Who from the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival, will be on show.

Artist Chris Myers will display his famous vibrant watercolours of David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and many more. 

With vinyl coming back into fashion, Keith Haynes, whose work is all about incorporating the traditional record in his art, will be more popular than ever.

Guy Portelli says: “I am thrilled to be showing some of my work in the area that inspired the musicians. It's great to work with other artists who were equally influenced by these music legends which started the revolution and put the King's Road on the map.”

Ben Cooper, director of the Chelsea Art Fair, comments: “It is really exciting that the visual arts will help pay homage to the King's Road's musical heritage at our Fair this year. Art, music and fashion have always been closely interwoven with Chelsea and its most famous road. For our 22nd fair at The Chelsea Old Town Hall it seemed high time to reflect on local culture.”
