The Ink Society Limited was founded by a group of Chinese ink art enthusiasts in 2003 in Hong Kong as a non-profit-making organisation with charitable status under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance (Cap. 112).
The mission of The Ink Society is to foster a broader understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art that is based on or inspired by the ink tradition through an extensive range of programming, education and outreach activities.
The Ink Society has been a strong and persistent advocate for the establishment of an Ink Art Centre in Hong Kong. Ink art is a unique and important aspect of Chinese culture, one that continues to evolve and adapt in modern times. Ink art is more than just an art form; ink art is a tradition, a culture and a way of life. The Ink Art Centre is an original and differentiating concept, and we believe that a world class Ink Art Centre will be a focal point for the local community as well as a destination for visitors from all over the world.
