Direct from London's Saatchi Gallery, the Australian outpost of the mega-successful The Other Art Fair has just opened its doors to Sydney audiences. Get a shortcut to your art crush with our guide to the hottest new talent 

Have you ever noticed that a room without art can feel a little soulless? You can have all the latest trends in furniture and homewares, pops of colour and fancy lighting fixtures, but artwork is the magic silver bullet to give a space that extra sparkle. Very much like plants, artwork provides an injection of life and vitality that can't be replicated by off the shelf décor. 

With the exorbitant prices of most commercial galleries a little out of reach for most of us, it's refreshing to see an initiative like The Other Art Fair filling the gap in the market for affordable contemporary art.

Following successful events in London and New York, The Other Art Fair - Australia's leading art fair for emerging artists presented by Saatchi Art - has returned to Sydney for a four-day showcase of Australia's most promising contemporary artists. Taking place from 26-29 October at Australian Technology Park, Eveleigh, this years' Art Fair comprises more than 100 artists presenting painting, ceramics, photography, sculpture, printmaking and more.

As Ryan Stanier, Founder and CEO explained, "The Other Art Fair was born from a realization of the disparity between an international art audience eager to discover the next big thing and talented artists struggling to gain recognition

"By choosing from our 100 emerging artists, visitors can buy with confidence, knowing that they are purchasing form artists who have been hand-selected from over 700 applications by a committee of art world experts. Furthermore the fair is a chance to invest in an artist who is truly serious about their practice and their career, an individual with the vision to make their name. It is this thrilling potential that makes the fair so exciting."
