I was at this last FreshPaint show in Tel Aviv and it was great. 33,000 visitors came in a span of 5 days to see the latest in young Israeli art:
A huge success for Fresh Paint 2!
Over 33,000 people visited Fresh Paint 2 art fair, in just 5 days!
A large audience enjoyed the creative work of more than one hundred artists and purchased artworks. We thank all our visitors for your support!
Fresh Paint art fair ended, but Fresh Paint’s group exhibition is still on!
Interested in young Israeli art? Would like to see more from the fair’s artists?
