Fill The Empty Space on Your Wall

Cyril Power, 'The Tube Station', c. 1932

Moving House? Redecorating? Or are you just bored of staring at the same painting that's been hangup on your living room wall for thirty years? If ever there was a time to revitalise your home with some new blood - or rather paint - then it is now. Or rather between the 25th-28th April at the Royal Academy of Arts.

Entering its twenty-eighth year, The London Original Print Fair is the longest running print fair in the world. It covers all periods of printmaking, such as the 15th century woodcuts by the German engraver, Albercht Dürer, whose fifteen theological carvings include The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and The Dragon with the Seven Heads. You will also find contemporary graphic work of Bradford-born, David Hockney, and Britain's richest living artist, Damien Hirst.

There will be dozens of exhibitors from art societies to gallery representatives, among which are Frederick Mulder with work from Picasso, and Julian Page, exhibiting prints by Alexander Massouras.

Tickets can be booked in advance or on the day. Entry is £12 for adults or £8 concessions, and includes a catalogue of the available prints. You can also buy the catalogue separately for £7, but for the difference in price, you might as well go along to the event and see the work for yourself.

On the 25th April there will also be a special talk by the children's illustrator, Quentin Blake, who will discuss the Prospect of Print. Tickets are £12 for adults or £6 concessions.
