W e’re well known for choosing and using distinctive artwork throughout our projects.  We like to keep up to date with what’s going on in the art world at all levels so decided to check out Art16 at London’s Olympia last week to see what we could find.

“Art16 unites art-lovers, collectors, gallerists and artists from around the globe, together with an engaging programme of free talks, expert-led tours and performances, and a highly anticipated revolving pop-up restaurant by Corbin & King, the duo behind The Wolseley and The Delaunay.”

from artists and galleries from every continent,

showcasing exciting emerging talent alongside

established contemporary artists.

FAVOURITE THING: Philip Colbert’s Fried Egg World – a pop-up cafe housed in a mirrored space decorated with eggs, bacon, cigarettes and other delights that you might find in a typical greasy spoon caff made out of sequins, no less.

“I wanted to create a “FRIED EGG WORLD” for Art 16.  I love the egg as a symbol, the ultimate marriage of humour and aesthetics. On one level, the abstract aesthetic purity of Piet Mondrian strived for, on the other capturing the humour of the greasy British fry up.”
