Ink art is a unique Chinese art form with a long history. During more than 1,000 years of transformation and evolution, ink art has become a fusion of the spirit and accomplishment of different schools and masters past and present.
Through artistic innovations ink art has transcended time and borders and plays a vital role in displaying the diversity and identity of Chinese art with international horizons.
Ink art took root in Hong Kong in the early 20th century. Since then, painters have branched out from the traditional approach to develop their own distinctive styles, often based on new multimedia and digital techniques with global influences.
