Fine Art Asia 2017 will take place from 30 September until 3 October 2017, at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. Now in its 12th year, Fine Art Asia will head up Hong Kong's peak art season, and coincides with the major Hong Kong auctions that take place at the same venue.  The event brings together a high-profile audience of dealers, collectors, curators, connoisseurs and art lovers from across the world.

Fine Art Asia is Asia’s leading fine art fair, showcasing a wide range of museum-quality art from Asia and the West, spanning over 5,000 years, from ancient Chinese bronzes to Art Deco jewellery.  With 40% of the event's exhibitors hailing come from locations outside of Asia (New York and London in particular) there are specialist dealers in silver, jewellery, antiquities, modern design, Impressionist and modern paintings, watches and clocks.

In 2016, Fine Art Asia launched a new section devoted to contemporary photography, and co-presented the Hong Kong Sculpture Biennial.  Both were very well received.  Over 22,500 visitors attended, with many exhibitors reporting their best fair yet. Lewis Smith of Koopman Rare Art, London said, “The fair produced as always an impressive range of clients interested in learning about and collecting English silver.  The buyers are savvy and searching for high quality, interesting objects.”

Amongst new exhibitors in 2017 will be Carlton Rochell Asian Art, New York with classical Indian paintings and Rare by Oulton, Hong Kong with distinctive and rare European antiques such as chess sets and Louis Vuitton luggage.  The photography section will also be extended due to its success last year.

Fine Art Asia was founded in 2006 by Hong Kong-based Andy Hei, a second generation dealer in classical antique Chinese furniture. His goal was to encourage a greater appreciation for Western art amongst collectors in China, to promote understanding of different artistic traditions, and to serve as a bridge to the Asian market for leading Western art galleries.  In 2011 Andy Hei was joined by Calvin Hui, and together they have created a vibrant event with a unique range from around 100 dealers.

“International exhibitors who join us in Hong Kong, such as Vanderven Oriental Art from The Netherlands, Susan Ollemans from London, Galerie Dumonteil (Paris/Shanghai/New York) and Gladwell & Patterson, from London, who have participated for a number of years, say they have now established a serious client base in Asia through their presence at the fair,” explains Andy Hei.  Well-known collectors and trade buyers who attend include Robert Chang, Adrian Cheng, Robert Tsao, Giuseppe Eskenazi, James Lally, Hugh Moss, and Ma Weidu.
