BRAFA 2024, a surreal art fair


This year’s edition of BRAFA highlights Surrealism, all the while specifically remembering Belgian painter Paul Delvaux.

Indeed, it’s been 30 years since the late painter Paul Delvaux passed away, so the Brussels Art Fair thought it fitting to make the Paul Delvaux Foundation the guest of honour at this 69th edition of the fair.

The respected Belgian painter is celebrated in a space with exclusively his own work, and some of Delvaux’s favourite themes have been sprinkled across the various stands.

Not only has it been 30 years since Delvaux’s passing, the Surrealist movement is blowing out 100 candles, as it were; Delvaux is often associated with the movement, even though he himself rejected the term. In any case, between the artist and the movement, BRAFA has so much to offer!

So prestigious is BRAFA that they attract exhibitors and visitors from countries around the world, boasting more than 130 galleries, all together at Brussels Expo. Paintings, jewellery, impressive busts – nothing is too big or too small for BRAFA.

There is truly something for any taste in art at this Brussels Art Fair, and the fact that it will be celebrating its 70th edition next year is a testament to the fair’s quality. We can’t wait for the next one!
