Please join us at an exclusive event at Art Central, Hong Kong’s first waterfront art fair to hear author, renowned painter, and Chinese antiques authority, Hugh Moss, share his insights on how to appreciate Asian art.

In a candid, interactive and highly informative talk, he will introduce the principles for looking at art devised over decades of representing artists and working with some of Chinese culture's finest objects and paintings as recorded in his new book 'The Art of Understanding Art’.   Guests will be encouraged to share their impressions on the work exhibited.   Afterwards, Hugh will walk the group to select works in Art Central to illustrate his theories and help us see, from his point of view, contemporary works from dozens of galleries and discover some of the most exciting artists today. 

About our speaker:

Hugh Moss operated a gallery specialising in Asian art in London's West End before moving to Hong Kong in the 1970s. In the 1980s, he represented some of China’s leading artists, and took up painting himself, becoming an accomplished artist painting under the name of The Master of the Water, Pine and Stone Retreat. An acknowledged expert in Chinese snuff bottles, scholarly works of art and modern paintings, he has worked closely with the world’s leading auction houses for over 50 years.
