Wow! is the best and easiest way to describe the new Spark Art Fair in Vienna, saddly coming to an end today, but definitely here to stay.
Last chance to visit the Fair at the Marx Halle.

The SPARK Art Fair offers the perfect opportunity to dive into the contemporary world of a divine selection of artists with amazing work, and incredible stories.
Renger van den Heuvel and his team definitely created an incredible event, which succeeded under these difficult circumstances to attract all kinds of amazing visitors.
Gallerists took the risk and invested into this new art fair because it was coming from someone they respect and trust.
The atmosphere at the fair is intimate and at the same time open.
Glass in hand one almost dances throughs the open space moving from one booth into the next.
In and out, story after fascinating story, just the way I like it.
The gallerists all seemed happy and glad to share, enjoying ones company talking and reconnecting after all these months of seclusion.
The Spark art fair finale is here.
Tonight the doors will close and we will have to wait till next year in March for the next Spark fair.
I cant wait to get back today.
I will suck in all this incredible energy, all I have learned, seen, and fallen in love with in these past days.
I am posting this and then I am off again, to spend hours surrounded by amazing people, meeting new ones, seeing old faces and just getting immersed in a magical world.
If you haven’t been there yet then I truly recommend you take the time and head to the Fair on this fine day and make it a memorable one.
The gallerists are incredibly friendly.
When you enter their space and they start telling you the story behind the artist, behind the work, you become immersed into a magical world.
Plan to eat there too, the food is delicious, the service top, and the venue one of the coolest in town.
We were lucky to be there for the opening and it will remain an unforgettable event.
Big applause and a big thank you to Renger van den Heuvel and his incredible team for this really wonderful event.
