We've taken a look at Art14 London's list of who not to miss at this year's fair and selected some of the most exciting artists on display. From the collection of contemporary Indonesian art, Ronald Manullang is most certainly a highlight, his hyper realist style portrays political and celebrity icons often in comprising arrangements. Most of his work is exquisitely detailed oil on canvas, although at first glance the vivid colours and patterns might lead you to think this was collage.
Shanghai native Zhang Lehua represented by the Vanguard Gallery demonstrates his witty commentary on the complexities of Chinese culture through a range of old style publicity board paintings using marker pen on canvas. Other works include experimentations with gouache, and a profound technique of ironing photographs before painting them.
Gordon Chenug, from the Edel Assanti is a London based artist who uses a vast array of materials including spray paint, oils, acrylics and pastels. As well as these, Art14 London sees his vivid animations come to life in neon colours and a slick graphic style.
