Ink Asia & Fine Art Asia

Ink Asia prides itself on being the world’s first art fair solely dedicated to promoting the appreciation of the unique medium of ink art.

This year’s event marks the 5th fair, which is again being held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai, starting on October 4.

Ink Asia’s artists come from a wide background, fostering not only an appreciation of ink art, but also providing opportunities for a cultural exchange amongst artists, galleries and collectors from Asia and beyond.

The fair also shows that ink art is not limited to traditional ink paintings and calligraphy on rice paper, as the contemporary ink artists are using a variety of forms inspired by ink, such as sculpture, large installations, and photography.

This year’s Ink Asia event is once again being run alongside Fine Art Asia 2019, Asia’s leading international fine art fair. With a collection that spans 5,000 years, some of the treasures on display include rare Buddhist and Hindu paintings; sculptures and ritual objects from China, India and the Himalayas; antique Chinese furniture; as well as jewellery and timepieces.

Last year, Ink Asia and Fine Art Asia showcased more than 10,000 works of art, worth over US $510 million, with an attendance of more than 25,000 visitors from across the globe.

The fair runs for four days, from October 4 to 7, and tickets cost HK$120.00. However, it pays to go with a friend, as a pass for two people costs HK$200.00. Admission is free for children under 12, when accompanied by an adult with ticket.
