Tanya Baxter Contemporary Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong 2016
The Ethos behind our collection for AAF Hong Kong is to showcase a diverse variety of art that is both affordable and discerning. We will feature artists that are established internationally but are still accessible in price.
At this year’s Hong Kong edition of the Affordable Art Fair, 13 – 15 May, Tanya Baxter Contemporary will be showcasing a diverse variety of art that is both affordable and discerning. In 2016 we launched a new art advisory office and showroom in central Hong Kong, 1/F Chinachem Hollywood Centre, 1 Hollywood Road. This allows us to connect with our large client base in Asia, and we will be exhibiting a range of blue chip, investment quality art here to coincide with our stand at the Affordable Art Fair.
The ethos behind our collection for the Affordable Art Fair is to provide discerning art for everyone while at the same time showcasing artists that are on an international platform but are still accessible in price. Our Post-War Modern and Contemporary Art collection is eclectic and diverse, from Anish Kapoor to Andy Warhol, Banksy, and Lucian Freud. We feature a group of established international mid-career artists with whom we have worked for up to twenty years and who have developed a diverse collector base around the world, both corporate and private. These artists include Richard Allen, Jean Philippe Duboscq, Benjamin Warner, Katarina Monnier, Hong Viet Dung, Revati Sharma Singh, Ronnie Ford, Zhao Kailin, Ling Jian, Liu Fenghua, Min Wae Aung, Paul Hughes, and Simon Allen amongst others.
We will also be exhibiting a selection of limited edition prints from artists such as Banksy and Tracey Emin. Limited editions are an easier way for collectors to acquire a piece of art from a blue chip artist, and have become a very attractive and profitable market. In recent years several major museums and galleries have held shows dedicated to limited edition prints that have brought awareness to the importance of printmaking in an artist’s development.
Contemporary art has become the primary driver of the global art market. Buyers are more confident and quicker to buy than ever before, and drastic growth has made contemporary art a safe and exciting market. With recent economic uncertainties, however, it is even more important to provide and support art at a more affordable level. This also provides a more accessible market, allowing more people to become first time collectors and to support artists at many different levels.
