Painters create the best work they can in 20 minutes, while you can move around the easels and see the creative process unfold before your eyes!  At the end of the round, the audience votes for their fav piece and bids in a silent auction to take the work home!

Interactive art experiences for you to discover and immerse yourself in.

Unleash your originality, one screen at a time

Drop in and try your hand at screenprinting! 

Taught by local legend Carizza, try your hand at printing tote bags that you can take home and brag about forever!  Designs are pre-drawn by artists Tom Gerrard, Cheryl Heap and Nah Mate Pokes.

Plus for any tote you purchase, all profits go to The Refugee Council Of Australia.

The Karmacy

A play on the ‘take what you need’ bulletin, the Karmacy invites you to choose the bottle containing what you most need and allow the well-wishes of a karmacist to work their magic. Replace the karmacist’s note with your own for the next soul in need of a pick-me-up, and place the bottle back on the shelf.  You might even find some of the notes come all the way from Dallas, where the Karmacist last was…

Tickets to the Coastline

Tickets to the Coastline by Sea Through Sound aims to bridge the gap between the ephemeral joy of dancing at your favourite concert and the often under-appreciated, presence of the ocean. By integrating AI, ocean photography, and clips from Fred Again’s recent shows, Sea Through Sound has created an immersive experience that encapsulates the exhilaration and collective euphoria of music fans, paralleled with the serene beauty and significance of the ocean to drive our deeper appreciation for the big blue. What would you pay to see your favourite artist one more time? How much would you pay for one more trip to the beach? What if you could give that to the next generation? 


Grab a ‘Ticket to the Coastline’ to support ocean charity ‘Underwater Earth’ from the Sea Through Sound booth and go into the running to win a Sea Through Sound print.

Get your next ink with us

Nah Mate Pokes is a stick and poke artist from Sydney. 

His work ranges from crude hand-drawn childlike pieces to perfect, delicate, clean line work. The subject matter of his drawings can veer from familiar childhood characters who’ve taken a bizarre and dark turn to simple pieces that are cute, silly, and always recognizably nah mate.

He’ll be tattooing flash all four days of the Fair, with pieces starting from $150.  First in best tattooed!


Julia Goodnow 

An original horse-girl, Julia (who tattoos under the name it was the fairies!) creates pieces filled with whimsy.  Her hand is guided by the fairies to create beautiful imagery inspired by nature and magic so that you can keep a little bit of the ethereal world with you forever.  She’ll be tattooing flash all four days of the Fair, with pieces starting from $150

Your Art Soundtrack

We’ll be bringing you boundary-pushing art to the beat of DJ sets from MusicLand- and we’ve got you covered all weekend.

New Futures Awardee – Catherine Weng

Art should never be elite. The New Futures program is part of our continued mission to break down traditional barriers of the contemporary art world by giving prizes to talented, often underrepresented, emerging artists. Each recipient is given free exhibition space at The Other Art Fair along with access to networks and opportunities designed to jump-start their careers.

Catherine Weng is a young emerging artist currently studying for a BA in Fine Art at RMIT. Born in Sydney, she recontextualizes memories of swimming from her childhood in her work. Combined with her fascination with the human body, she experiments with various mediums of textiles, graphite, and paint to create surreal imagery. With the intent of confronting expressions of the human form, she explores themes of the subconscious and existential theory.

Pull ‘n’ Shots Coffee

Want an oat milk latte to fuel your art-shopping? Need an espresso before you hit our Friday Late Night party? Pull’N’Shots coffee truck will be serving up their speciality coffee all weekend long.
