This year, the Chester Arts Fair is proud to showcase artwork by some of the most highly regarded and influential individuals of the 20th & 21st Century. Original artwork by former World leader Nelson Mandela will go on public display and sale, a rare opportunity to view pieces taken from The Long Walk to Freedom collective inspired by his time on Robben Island. The drawing’s and handwritten motivations to accompany the works are of great historical significance. The Belgravia Gallery from London will be presenting this unique collection alongside original Lithographs by Henri Matisse and HRH the Prince of Wales.
Art Fair Co-Director, Laura O’Hare said “This will be a rare opportunity to view and buy original Nelson Mandela artwork. We are very privileged to be entrusted with the sale of these iconic pieces to allow his vision to continue. This art collection will no doubt be a highlight of the Fair”.
In addition to showcasing artwork by leading galleries and established artists, the Fair is also pleased to introduce a New Artist area designed specifically for 2015 to showcase work from a hand-picked selection of up and coming, emerging artists.

All our art is exhibited by leading galleries which guarantees its authenticity and high level of quality.”
