Amsterdam KunstRai 2013

Our favorites at the KunstRai in Amsterdam.
We visited this small fair yesterday (60 stands, open till monday 20th of May) there was lots of glass art on show, as well as Africania and many photo-works. Trends we’ve noticed: rough sketches, stuffed animals, laboratory-like art, abstract/african art and jewelry. We’re sorry for wanting to categorize but it couldn’t be missed because of the small size of the fair.kunstrai1Bernard Heesen at Jan van Hoof gallery. Made us think of a poodle, and we love poodles, especially the pastel colored ones, as you all know.kunstrai2
