Boasting a global reputation as Asia’s leading fine art fair, Fine Art Asia charts over 5,000 years of Chinese history through museum-quality pieces, from bronzes to contemporary art. The fair celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, holding its 2015 edition early this October at the Hong Kong Exhibition Centre and hosting around 100 renowned galleries and attracting dealers, collectors and art connoisseurs from the world over.

Among the dizzying array of 6,500 pieces of Asian and Western antiques and artworks were famous names such as Rembrandt, Monet and Picasso, and jewellery and timepieces were dotted throughout the displays of European Impressionist and Chinese ink paintings.
A particular highlight was the new project The World of Design, an exhibition dedicated to 20th and 21st century vintage and contemporary design furniture and installations, including works by Studio Putman, Arik Levy and NOKJA Design.
