‘Roy’s People Art Fair introduces new Live Installation ‘Perception of People’
This year, the team from Roy’s People Art Fair will bring a unique live installation, featured in the entrance hall of the fair, starting 4th April at the Private View. They have invited various selected artists to bring their skills and paint live each day. The artists will be then creating their artwork as part of a large mural displaying how different artists perceive the human form.
Tyson and Peacock founded the fair as a platform, mainly, to offer their invaluable expertise and support to both emerging and established artists as they navigate the art world. Above all, their main focus: developing a community led spirit initiated by artists to connect directly with the public and also promote both the artists’ and buyers’ interests first.
