The Affordable Art Fair returns to the Convention and Exhibition Centre this year from the 4th - 7th August. We are getting excited and if last year is anything to go by, this year's fair is going to be fantastic! Here’s a round up of booths that you won’t want to miss. Can’t wait to see you all there!
The Hong Kong Arts Collective - Booth D12
Well if we’re making a list of booths not to miss we can’t help but mention ourselves! We’ve got a great lineup for you this year. Some familiar names like Camille Levert, Wu Jianzhong and Pete Ross will be with us again and we’ve got some exciting new talent in the form of Rick Lo, Elena Klimova and Shawn P Griffin. We can’t wait for you to see what we’ve got in store.

Next Gen - Young Talents booth
Curated by the one and only Johnathan Jay Lee, the Next Gen booth is going to be a knock out. JJL has brought together 26 young and very talented local artists to bring you THE NEXTGEN. We already know some of these artist, Kristy Hon and JUM, so if their standard of work is anything to go by we’re all in for an absolute treat.

Art Supermarket always put on a good show and we’re sure their booth at this years fair will be no different. Get ready for bright eye-catching work from artists such as Szabotage and Michael Andrew Law.

Young Soy - Booth A03
If you haven’t heard about Young Soy yet then you’re missing out. With a very successful booth last year and some amazingly talented artists on their books, we’re very much looking forward to their booth this year. With 13 artists for you to feast your eyes on, you won’t be disappointed. In particular we’re excited to see Mooncasket, Taxa, Obsrvr and Francesco Lietti.
