Frieze and Art Basel are great... if you're window shopping. But wouldn't it be nice to actually buy something, or maybe even a few things? The Affordable Art Fair was founded in 1996 by Will Ramsay in response to the public's increasing interest in London’s highbrow contemporary art scene, and continues today to be a leading global fair with outposts in 15 cities. Paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs range from $100-$10,000, with more than half priced under $5,000.
