German born, Karin Weber worked in the antiques/fine art market in London, England for 15 years before moving to Hong Kong in 1990. Karin Weber Gallery was founded in 1995 and has been showing contemporary fine art in SOHO since 1999. In the early years, the Gallery introduced contemporary Myanmese art to collectors and we are proud to have helped launch the international career of MIN WAE AUNG, AUNG MYINT, NAY MYO SAY and many others.
The Gallery has successfully nurtured new talents from China through its connection with Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. We are proud to represent Beijing based artist YANG SHEWEI whose scrolls in Chinese ink on paper have generated great interest with his excellent technique and social commentary. His works are collected by museums and both corporate and private collectors.
Over the last few years, the Gallery introduced well known German artists to the territory including WILLI SIBER, TINA BUCHHOLTZ and MICHAEL LAUBE, all artists with international reputation and a wide following. As of date, the Gallery is the only one with a significant presence of German artists in Hong Kong.
The Gallery is delighted to work with 3 very young Japanese artists, who combine vision, skill and detail to their work without compromising their artistic heritage. We represent works by TOMOAKI TARUTANI, VIWA AND NAOTO TANNO.
The venture into art photography field by the Gallery has proven successful 2 years ago with ADAM MAGYAR, who has since won a number of awards in United States. One of his pieces was recently acquired by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum.
