Speak to the talented artists and crafters of fascinating work of art who join the market. They will all be very happy to share their stories and behind the scenes about the one-of-a-kind pieces they have created in the past month, as well as the creative muse which has brought them to imagine and realise every artwork.

Artists at the market vary each month. Below, a shortlist of some of the artists often present at Spitalfields, with their website to get in touch directly for purchase.
Ashley Vincent: Wildlife Photography
Ashley is a National Geographic Photo Contest winner and photographer dedicated to immortalising the wildlife with his striking pictures. In his stand, you’ll find a variety of animals photographed in either their home habitats or at rescue centres, wildlife parks and zoos around the world.
Neil is a London-based photographer documenting human stories and immortalising experiences with his camera. He travels the UK and, before the pandemic, the world to catch the perfect shot that can inspire emotion and awe. Over the years, he has recorded incredible moments now suspended in time in his frames, bringing people and beautiful places back to life for everyone to enjoy.
Sarah brings energy and passion to market with incredibly fluid abstract landscapes and cityscapes. Her painting in oil on canvas can also be enjoyed as fine prints on canvas and paper. Sarah expresses herself through colour and movement, layering her creations down instinctively by using a mix of tools from brushes, to palette knives and her fingers. The use of different tools to form the images let her transmit intuition and spontaneity in every piece of work.
Sherri’s background in fashion design and, specifically, womenswear design and product development has given her a unique eye for shapes, colours and patterns. In 2019, she debuted at the London Fashion week with her solo line, displaying her bold prints and a keen eye for detail. Her unique views and talent continue to impress in the abstract art pieces of fine art she brings to the Art Market.
Through Steve, figurative art takes a new form. In his environmentally conscious sculptures, art lovers can explore the meeting of traditional aesthetics and the innovative use of recycled material. Bus shelter glass & resin or recycled papier-mâché paper products are Steve favourite mediums to creates reflections of the human body.
