This year's Frieze Art Fair proved that despite a faltering economy, art fairs can still get bigger and stronger. Chris Osburn attended this massive London fair, where over 150 of the world’s most exciting galleries showcase their best artists.
As noted by the long queue above, art fans flocked to view this year’s Frieze. Frieze Art Fair takes place every October in Regent’s Park, London and showcases new and established artists to an international audience. Take a look at a few of Chris Osburn’s favorite works from the Fair:
