This October, Moniker Art Fair returns to east London’s iconic Old Truman Brewery for its sixth year, having firmly established itself as London’s premiere event for contemporary art rooted in urban culture.

For this year’s edition, Moniker Art Fair have announced an exciting venture to become the world’s first international art fair to accept Bitcoin payments.

This move confirms Moniker’s reputation in the modern art market as a progressive fair that seeks to inspire social change. Their 'Renaissance is Now' installation focuses on the solutions offered by global connectivity, decentralisation and collaborative consumption. Displayed across a 50ft wall, the installation will take centre stage and aims to inspire and inform, leaving the visitor with a sense of hope and belief that our world really can be changed for the better.

Frankie Shea, Director of Moniker Projects, comments: Over the last 6 years, Moniker Art Fair has helped forge a direct, unpretentious approach to appreciating and collecting art from a new generation of contemporary artists. With 'Renaissance is Now', our goal is not only to produce a visually stunning installation, but to introduce Bitcoin and its benefits to the wider public.

Specialising in urban culture and its related genres, Moniker Art Fair will showcase approximately 20 national and international contemporary art galleries. The fair will showcase the work of legendary Bristol stencil artist Nick Walker in a Moniker Projects curated immersive setting. MYA Gallery (FR) will be hosting the first UK solo show with the highly collectable French street artist Bom.k. A Star Wars inspired collection of works by Ryan Callanan (TAG Fine Arts, UK) and original works by French artist WK Interact (Kallenbach Gallery, NL) will also be exhibited.

Secondary market works from Banksy to Peter Blake to Takashi Murakami will also feature at the fair.

This year’s affordable limited edition prints, brought to you by JAM editions, will include Obama’s favourite artist Ben Eine, with the latest release of his sold out letters series, Sheffield's finest artist, illustrator and hip-hop musician Kid Acne, and NYC based artist and leading figure in the popular 'doodle' art style, Jon Burgerman.

'Art On A Postcard' will make its debut at Moniker Art Fair this year with a secret auction of 200 original postcard-size artworks, with contributors including collectable artists such as Gilbert & George, Ben Eine and Harland Miller. The collectable pieces will be available to buy with a £50 lottery ticket and the lottery numbers will then be matched to the artworks on the closing day of the fair.

All food and drink at Moniker will be overseen by Assemble London, the latest venture from Street Feast founder Dominic Cools-Lartigue. In recent years, he has helped revolutionise the way people eat out in London with venues like Dalston Yard, Hawker House and Dinerama.

Moniker Art Fair will once again venue-sharing with London’s unique artist-led fair, The Other Art Fair, in what will be a showcase of independent and established talent all under one roof in East London.
