For a long time, contemporary ink art was limited to the Asian continent. However, through the diligent work from these artists, contemporary ink art has found its way to the West and has since influenced many artists. While rooted in ink tradition, these artists strive to revolutionize the classical format and reinvented traditional ink art, be it through the use of innovative media, choice of subject matter, presentation or composition. Artists showcasing here include the prestigious Chinese diaspora Walasse Ting, internationally acclaimed Zhang Yu, Nan Qi and Lan Zhenghui from Mainland China, Hong Kong sculptor Kum Chi-keung and the emerging female artist Zhang Yirong.

These artists collectively stand at the forefront of a movement to take traditional ink painting into a new era, pushing the boundaries of what defines and determines contemporary ink art.
