Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
For Whitewaller‘s inaugural London&Paris issue, out for Frieze London 2016, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things London—that shared with us how to navigate the city during the art fair. Next up, we have artist Jonathan Yeo who shares his top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax next week.
WHERE TO EAT
My favorite place to eat at the moment is probably Dinerama, which opened recently in Shoreditch. If I had to pick a favorite dish, it would have to be the smoked haddock soufflé at the Dean Street Townhouse, where, full disclosure, I designed the pornographic wallpaper.
WHERE TO SIP
Groucho Club, where they invented the espresso martini and where they continue to make the best ones.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Newport Street Gallery. The spaces are airy and it’s cleverly designed because each of the galleries is full of natural light, and rather than having light coming in from windows at eye level, which just reflects off the works, it all comes from above.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
I love foraging around antiques and junk markets for objects, props, and outfits for the studio. Therefore, I’d say Sunbury Antiques Market, which is a massive fair once a month at Kempton Park Racecourse, or, when I want something more central and posh, then Alfies Antique Market.
WHERE TO RELAX
I’m currently working with Google helping to develop some holographic drawing software called “Tilt Brush” and I actually find the total escapism of that very relaxing. Best of all is when my daughters, who are my other pastime, come and “help” me with it on weekends.
TOP SHOW TO SEE DURING FRIEZE
I’m really looking forward to “Picasso Portraits” at the National Portrait Gallery.
