Frieze is one the most prestigious art fairs in all over world, and it was not surprising to see such huge crowds when visiting this year’s first Seoul edition for instance – almost everybody seemed intent on viewing artwork or buying pieces from established names like George Condo.

Plenty more emerging talent should be given credit where its due because without these up-and coming creatives we would never hear about many mainstream successes today.
