About Fine Art Asia
Fine Art Asia was founded in 2006 by Hong Kong art experts and has earned a reputation in the international art world as the most distinguished annual fine art fair in the region. Over the years, the fair has increasingly attracted leading galleries from all over the world. Fine Art Asia provides an unrivalled annual showcase for art and antiques from both East and West during the peak art season in Hong Kong. Fine Art Asia 2022 will proudly present museum-quality Asian and Western antiques, jewellery, modern and contemporary art and design, ink art and photography.
Fine Art Asia 2022 is delighted to have a high-profile trio of Education Partners: The Ink Society, the Hong Kong Palace Museum and Hong Kong Art School. These renowned specialist institutions, as well as L’Ecole Asia Pacific: School of Jewelry Arts will once again host an Academic Programme of lectures and seminars by art experts from Hong Kong, strengthening academic discussion and interaction between scholars, galleries and collectors.
“A Tribute to Yu Peng”
The Ink Society will present a special exhibition “A Tribute to Yu Peng” at Fine Art Asia 2022. This exhibition is the sixth instalment of The Ink Society’s continuing “Tribute” series, which celebrates the art and legacies of master ink painters. Yu Peng (1955-2014) was one of the few contemporary ink artists who led a traditional literati life that was re-interpreted for modern day society. As well as painting, he practised design, pottery and woodwork, and built a charming garden that became his haven in the midst of urban Taipei. Many friends and fellow artists spent hours chatting with each other while enjoying Yu Peng’s warm hospitality.
“The Art of Flowers”
Renowned antique galleries Ming Gallery, Hong Kong and Wui Po Kok Antique Co. Ltd., Hong Kong will collaborate with Hana Art, a well-known Japanese Sogetsu floral design school in Hong Kong, to organise a special exhibition “The Art of Flowers” at this year’s fair. Ming Gallery will exhibit vases from the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644) and Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), while Wui Po Kok will present vases dating from the Neolithic period (10,000 – 4,500 BC) to the Song Dynasty (960-1279), enhanced by the floral decorations of today created by Hana Art. The exhibition aims to be a celebration of Chinese traditional culture through the combined beauty of floral art and antiques.
Andy Hei, Founder and Director of Fine Art Asia, said,
“While there are still travel restrictions in Hong Kong due to the ongoing pandemic, the situation is steadily improving. This year’s edition of Fine Art Asia once again focuses on Hong Kong’s excellent local galleries and leading art institutions. In addition to our long-standing exhibitors, we also warmly welcome those who are new to the fair and add to its richness and variety. As always, Fine Art Asia will continue to act as a bastion of every branch of the art and antiques market in Hong Kong, and we look forward to welcoming back our loyal overseas exhibitors hopefully in the near future.”
