DesignTrawler was invited by a number of galleries to a special preview of the London Art Fair last week. Always on the look out for shiny new pieces, the Zaha Hadid like steel sculptures from Russian born artist Margarita Trushina certainly tick the 'shiny and new' box. Available from the Salon Vert and also Dare to Joust galleries, all pieces are one-off with smaller examples from around £400.
Also of interest was Stephen Aldrch's gigantic and obsessively detailed hand cut collage 'Mechanism' made from old engineering journals, and of course the ever brilliant Alban from the French Art Studio.
