Priding itself on having the best hand-picked affordable art in Hong Kong, the Affordable Art Fair returns for its seventh year to the Hong Kong Exhibition Center in Wan Chai.
Tickets start at HK$100.00, and 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 Affordable Art Fair promises to have something for everyone.
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.
On May 17th, the fair will hold a special event, #ArtHappy Friday, to raise awareness of mental health issues and talk about the benefits of expressive art. A number of artists will also be performing live 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.
