Priding itself on having the best hand-picked affordable art in Hong Kong, the Affordable Art Fair (AAF) returns this May to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai.
With more than 100 local and international galleries taking part, this is a great chance to snap up something really special to adorn your home. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned art collector, the AAF promises to have something for everyone.
Prices range from just HK$1,000.00 to HK$100,000.00, making art accessible to newcomers, and attracting the top curators and galleries.
The organisers always make sure that there is a wide variety of art genres on display, including traditional ink painting, sculptures, photography, abstracts on canvas, large scale installations, and limited edition prints.
Artists from all over the world will be exhibiting, and with many distinctive works from Asia you’ll find inspiration from Singapore, Thailand, China, Japan and more. Some homegrown galleries promoting Hong Kong artists include Bamboo Scenes, the Joy Art Club, Art Projects Gallery, Art Supermarket, and Blue Lotus Gallery, all of which are well known in the local art scene.
A number of artists will be on-site creating new works right in front of your eyes, and giving talks about how art can change your life. There are also interactive events, such as poetry readings, art workshops and demonstrations, and artists in action working on special projects. This is a family friendly event, as children under 16 are free, and a 45-minute ‘children’s art tour’ is held daily.
