The capital's cultural curtain raiser: the London Art Fair returns

Seen as the annual curtain raiser for the capital's art world, the London Art Fair opened its doors in Islington this week.

The event is celebrating its 30th anniversary, with a show that blends high profile artists like Chris Levine, David Shrigley and Grayson Perry from some of the world's leading galleries.

London Live went to the Business Design Centre to speak to Sarah Monk, the fair's director, and two London gallerists, Hobby Limon from TAG Fine Arts and the Jealous gallery's Dario Illari.

The London Art Fair is on until Sunday 21st January 2018.
