Formerly known as KÖLNER LISTE, the Discovery Art Fair is a dynamic event that inspires attendees and fosters the discovery of new artists and artworks. The fair caters to both novice and seasoned collectors, presenting a wide range of emerging contemporary art at affordable prices. With an exceptional selection of local and international galleries, it's a progressive, must-visit event in Germany.

Art enthusiasts view the Discovery Art Fair as the perfect complement to Art Cologne. It offers a chance to expand your contemporary art knowledge and collecting scope. The fair's friendly, communicative atmosphere encourages interaction with artists and gallerists, facilitating connections within the international art community. This stimulating environment is ideal for forging new artistic relationships, allowing collectors of all levels to acquire original art for their homes or offices.

The diversity of artistic media on display—from large-scale canvases to miniature editions, including sculptures, graphic prints, mixed media, installations, photography, video art, and urban art—ensures there is something for every taste. The carefully selected artworks promise a rich visual and stylistic variety, many of which have the potential to feature in world-renowned art spaces.

Hosted at the historic 4000 sqm XPOST venue, the fair introduces new art to Cologne and creates a hub for contemporary art enthusiasts. The late 19th-century industrial halls provide a perfect backdrop for the exhibitions and their array of educational programs for artists and art professionals, workshops, and guided tours.

The Discovery Art Fair Cologne is more than just an art fair; it's an immersive experience in the art world, offering a unique opportunity to connect with art professionals, dealers, and artists in person, and a marketplace for some of the most inventive and high-quality affordable art available.

We look forward to welcoming you to another unique art-viewing experience at the Discovery Art Fair Cologne 2024. Join us to inspire and activate the collector in you!

Tchif Tchiakpe (Benin)

Tchif (aka Francis Nicaise Tchiakpe) is an experimental colorist pur sang. In his abstract expressionist  ‘total’ compositions, he explores freely various mediums such as acrylic, oil, pigments, ink and collage with textile fibers, paper or any other materials on canvas.  His works emerge in various organic layers to which he adds his own symbolic language. That results in beautiful  color compositions, full of nuance, movement and depth, estranged dream worlds in which there is a lot to discover.
