Alisan Fine Arts is excited to announce our debut in Asian Art in London with a group exhibition titled Contemporary Chinese Art. The exhibition will also be the gallery's debut show at Cromwell Place. For this special occasion, we will showcase seven Chinese contemporary artists, including 4 internationally acclaimed artists: Chinese diaspora Chao Chung-Hsiang (1910–1991) and Walasse Ting (1928-2010), ink master Lui Shou-Kwan (1919–1975), contemporary ink artist Wang Tiande, as well as a new generation of women artists: Man Fung-Yi, Zhang Xiaoli, and Zhang Yirong.
