Frieze Art Fair

At £25 pound a ticked "Frieze Art Fair" was clearly an upmarket affair. One of my first comments was "Does anyone else feel like their in Ikea?". I think that summed it up. It was Ikea for really rich people from Paris. The art in general was pretty good and some pieces really blew me away. I particularly enjoyed the Saville piece. The number of abstract installations and sculptures really seemed to overpower the little painting and drawing talent that was there. I also met Saad from "School of Saatchi" which was an exciting experience. He seemed shocked that I knew who he was though. To conclude. I enjoyed the fair but it was too busy and pretentious.
