Roundup: Surrey Contemporary Art Fair 2019

On the weekend of March 15th the Surrey Contemporary Art Fair returned to Sandown Park Racecourse for the second year running. The new darling of the art fair circuit showcased an eclectic mixture of exhibitors from artists to galleries who displayed artworks from across a multitude of artistic disciplines and mediums.

Having had such a tremendously successful year with the highly talented British mixed-media artist Rob Bishop, we decided to dedicate the whole of Reem Gallery’s stand to Rob Bishop’s artworks. Over the course of the weekend, hundreds marvelled at the methods used by Rob to achieve his pop culture portraits, with many of the artworks finding new homes. Admirers also had the opportunity to chat with Rob on the Sunday and get an even more personal insight into his style and work.

Reem Gallery in Miami

Christmas came early for Reem Gallery as we ventured off to sunny Miami for the world renowned Art Basel Miami.

Over the course of the week we spent time with gallery artists Thirsty Bstrd, Pure Evil and the Connor Brothers and met artists from other  spectrums of the contemporary art scene such as Irish painter Vincent Devine and Italian sculptor Lorenzo Quinn. We were also invited to meet for the first time American street artist Kai, known for creating the universally recognised “IF” character.

Having explored every notable art fair in Miami from Art Basel, Context Miami & Art Miami, PULSE, the Untitled Art Fair to Scope Art Fair; we have left absolutely buzzing from the outstanding strength and diversity of the contemporary art market. We look forward to returning in 2019!

The stage is set: 'REBEL' exhibition launches in London on historic night

All the world’s a stage, and every October all the players make their entrances on the London art scene. From the galleries who launch their newest exhibitions to auction houses hammering down on their latest prized artworks to numerous weekend long art fairs; in this time the capital becomes the undisputed centre of the art world.

The launch night for Reem Gallery’s inaugural London show brought together art admirers, passers-by, collectors and artists into one merry and vibrant evening. Being surrounded by more traditional art dealers, our selection of carefully curated artists has been very well received as a welcome addition to the Mayfair and St. James area. It seems deep down there is a rebel in all of us.

Around the corner at Sotheby’s auction house, Banksy’s ‘Girl with Balloon’ sold for just over £1 million pounds and then was instantly shredded infront of aghast onlookers! An historic event for sure that was broadcast globally across news channels. A timely reminder too that despite its infancy, the street art movement is one of the most talked about genres in the world today and will no doubt have a lasting legacy.

You can catch Reem Gallery’s ‘REBEL’ exhibition until October 30th at Mason’s Yard, St. James’s in London.
