Esquire meets Polly Morgan at Moniker

The Frieze International Art Fair opens today. While we have nought but a good word for the fair itself, the schlep around the gargantuan Regents Park camp can prove a little exhausting. If hour upon hour of art fills you with a vague sense of dread, we'd advise you take a moment, breathe and head over to East London to check out the latest (much smaller) addition to the fair circuit, Moniker.

Working with a host of artists "overlooked by mainstream fairs" Moniker takes focus on the ambiguous Street Art genre (which, judging by the seminar we attended on the subject last week, is a term whose meaning is very much still in contention) and will feature work from a host of up-coming - and alreaady there - artists, including Ben Eine (whose work David Cameron gifted to the Obama's earlier this year), Brazilian artist Titifreak and taxidermist Polly Morgan, who we caught up with at the press preview last week.

See the film above for our interview with Morgan, but for more on the fair - which opens today and will remain open until October 17 - please visit www.monikerartfair.com
