If you haven’t heard, London’s Anti Art Fair opening October 3-7 is the coolest new art fair that is breaking all the rules of what an art fair is supposed to be.

Expect to see ceramic masterpieces by Brooklyn-based artist Roxanne Jackson, who uses fun fur and metallic paint for female monster claws with gold fingernails. Her pieces are known for combining pastel colors with a Halloween freak aesthetic, which ties into the artist’s fascination with black humor, mythology and of course, kitsch.

You might know Jackson as the cofounder of the NASTY WOMEN international art exhibition, but here, she sheds light to the sometimes dark inner world of women.: “I’ve always been inclined to work that some would say is darker imagery. At points, sculptures of mine fit into the ideas of the grotesque which has a long line of history. Think of Goya during times of war,” said Jackson in a recent interview.

“I was questioning things like death at a young age when my grandpa died, and I lost other members of my family prematurely. It forced me to think about “What happens now?” Death was a part of my consciousness.”
