Hang-Up's Highlights of London Art Fair 2017

22 Jan 2017

London Art Fair had its 29th run this year, exhibiting today's leading contemporary artists alongside museum quality Modern British Art. With some of Hang-Up's favourite artists: Banksy, Joe Webb, Dan Hillier, The Connor Brothers, Maria Rivans, Magnus Gjoen and Bonnie & Clyde.

'If It's Not Wierd, I'm Not Interested' - The Connor Brothers

The Connor Brothers attracted the crowds with their collage making masterclass (with Bloody Mary's) - Follow one half of the duo on Instagram.

The Connor Brothers (once again) had a show stopper on display- last year exhibiting Byron's Bong, and this year with Einstein's Rock.

"Einstein claimed that the best ideas come during the semi-conscious state between sleep and awake, and he tried to stay in this state by holding a rock in his hand over the side of the bed. Each time he drifted off he dropped the rock and woke himself thus allowing him to stay in his most creative state for longer periods. The rock, alongside a quantity of letters, notebooks and personal effects where bought by John Hanbury at auction in 1979. It's on loan from the Hanbury collection to us" Mike Snelle from The Connor Brothers
