About Art Scene China
Art Scene China - Contemporary Chinese Art
  history of the gallery    

The aim of Art Scene China has always been to increase the awareness and understanding of contemporary Chinese art. Art Scene China was originally established in 1997 on the internet as a way for emerging Chinese artists to share their artwork with the world. Due to strong interest, Art Scene China grew to become a bricks-and-mortar gallery in Hong Kong in early 2000. Towards the end of 2002, Art Scene China moved to Shanghai The gallery's 1,800 square metre (18,000 square feet) space at 50 Moganshan Road was a great help in popularizing the area as an "artists' district" and was one of the key elements that convinced the Shanghai government to preserve the "art warehouse area" of Shanghai. In Fall 2006, Art Scene China again expanded by opening a space in Beijing at 798 Dashanzi.

In 2005 Art Scene China established the Chinese Art Prize (CAP) (originally the DECAA), the first important art prize to focus on young, emerging Chinese artists. For more information about the art awards, please visit the official website: www.chineseartprize.com.

Art Scene China's website features portfolios by many of the most talented contemporary Chinese artists. The site includes portfolios by each artist, artists' statements explaining the inspiration and motivation behind the artworks and articles by art critics further explaining the work. We hope that this will allow people to become familiar with and better understand each artist's work. The website also provides some screensavers of contemporary Chinese art for people who would like to enjoy the artworks offline, too.

gallery policy with artists
Many of the artists that Art Scene China deals with are exclusive to our gallery, or galleries that we cooperate with internationally. Art Scene China always deals directly with the Chinese artists in order to insure authenticity of the work. With representatives living and travelling throughout Mainland China, we are continually on the lookout for exciting, creative and high quality emerging Chinese artists.
