The Frieze London Art Fair takes place in Regent’s Park on October 11 – 14, and we have a pair of combined tickets to Frieze London and Frieze Masters to give away.

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets (and a goodie bag) for this year’s Frieze weekend, we want you to take some inspiration from one of this year’s inventively-named Turner Prize nominees – Spartacus Chetwynd – and add a comment to this blog post, telling us what you would take as your own artist name. As usual, bonus points for creativity.

You have until 13.00 GMT on October 8 to think of a suitably inventive artist name and submit it, before we announce a winner.
