The Gallery by SOIL is dedicated to presenting the art of lacquer from Asia. Based in Hong Kong, it is probably the first gallery which brings together lacquer masters and artists of diverse cultures, blending the traditional with the contemporary to showcase variety in the discipline.
Since 2012, The Gallery by SOIL has devoted most of its efforts and resources to lacquer design and research into lacquer as an art form.
