Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong
Affordable Art Fair is a fair known all over the world. Thus there are two editions in Asia – one in Singapore and one in Hong Kong – of the art fair with very reasonable prices. Indeed, art lovers can buy artworks from $1.000. Every year in May, Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong displays around 110 local and international galleries, showcasing everything from traditional ink painting to photography. The main difference between Affordable Art Fair and others fairs is that Affordable Art Fair is a fair where visitors can go in family. In other words, Affordable Art Fair is so much more than an art market: visitors there can attend a lot of activities, workshops, creatives talks and special events for children. In addition to Hampstead, there are many more Affordable fairs, like Affordable Art Fair Amsterdam, Affordable Art Fair Brussels or Affordable Art Fair Melbourne.
