Artists Car Boot Fair.

It was the 5th Artists car boot fair recently in part of the Truman Brewery site down Brick Lane.

I hadn't been for a couple of years and there were probably even more artists and people visiting this year. It was a really hot day which meant even covered in sun tan cream I couldn't stay to long, unfortunately.

Richard Clegg had some amazing cacti sculptures in car parts, I really liked the idea, but didn't have anywhere to put them. Bob and Roberta Smith had some of his concrete pieces, like "Art is my airplane"and "Up is the new down" that you could take rubbings from at £10 they were a bargain. Gavin Turk however had works, paper covered with boot prints, which were quite striking but at £200 each were not really car boot fair prices. David Harrison and Liz David had mini skeletal animal sculptures and tree forms which were delicate and intriguing.

There was a good range of cars on show, one was a piece called doubts were visitors could write about their doubts on the car, another had a scaletricx track around it where you could race the little toy cars.
I enjoyed my walk round taking photos as I went, walking along Brick Lane was difficult with the sheer crush of people, it is so busy on a Sunday now.
