Contemporary ink art has emerged as one of the most significant and ubiquitous artistic trends in mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong during the past decade, and is attracting increasing international attention. Described as ‘the new Chinese art’, major exhibitions focusing on Chinese contemporary ink art have been presented by some of the world’s leading museums in recent years, and it is being sold at record prices in the global art market.

What are the cultural, political and socioeconomic forces driving this popular upsurge of interest in ink art? What defines ink art today? And why are growing numbers of contemporary artists, and particularly younger artists across the region seeking to revitalise and reinvent this artistic genre which is widely associated with Chinese cultural tradition?
