Event Review: Art London

*  *  *  *  *

Royal Hospital Chelsea; 8th October 2009

A great London event is usually accompanied by London weather. By that, I mean the pelting rain that shot through the Kings Road skyline. Nevertheless, the rain didn’t dampen my exciting browse in Art London.

Arriving as wet as fish in water is certainly not stylish. None of that mattered because as soon as I entered the hall, the royal-esque atmosphere gripped me and never released me throughout.

Greeted with waiters and waitresses offering free champagne and exquisite little side dishes; frankly, it felt like waiting in and a serene and spacious oasis.

As for the art? Beautiful and imaginative. A wide range of art was present – abstract, paint, post-modern, stone sculptures and more.

Sir Peter Blake, Liu Fenghua and a featured exhibit of famous Frederic Lord Leighton, where his works was haunting yet heavenly, were just a fraction of pieces for all to see.

It was a extravagant evening – mingling with other people, art enthusiast or not, admiring the artist and their works or simply to get free drinks (unfortunately, which is only available for the one night). The exhibition doesn’t last long (finishing on 12th October) so get there while you have the chance.
