Karine Vanasse Spokesperson

“Even prior to be becoming its spokesperson, I found the Papier art fair to be an extraordinary guide to contemporary art. Every year I am amazed by the hundreds of visitors, each captivated by the works that speak to them, also discovering this event and, I recognize the desire to be transformed and transported by art, in those who return to the fair with as much enthusiasm as myself. Every year I find myself looking forward to this unique cultural event that, with every new edition, continues to push the limits.”

An internationally acclaimed actress and contemporary art enthusiast, Vanasse will promote the fair for the second consecutive year

Bill Clarke Ambassador

“There is a wide range of work that can be made on paper – drawings, collage, small paintings, prints, abstract or figurative – and, for many artists, paper-based work is central to their practice. This is one reason why I became attracted to art on paper. Plus, paper is easier to store, frame and care for, and is a more affordable option for someone like me who wants to live with art, but who makes an average salary.”
