An international Chinese ink painting exhibition will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center in August next year to mark the special administrative region's 20th anniversary.

Organizers, the Young Artists Development Foundation from Hong Kong, have put out a call for entries.

Dubbed "Ink Global", the exhibition aims to showcase the profoundness and excellence of contemporary ink painting from elite artists worldwide.

A total of 500 pieces of art will be on show at the event, which organizers hope will attract about 150,000 art lovers and visitors, making it the largest-ever art exhibition in Hong Kong.

"Ink Global is a community event celebrating the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's 20th anniversary. It aims to promote the development of ink painting and enhance its position in the international art circle," said Nellie Fong, chairman of the Young Artists Development Foundation.

According to Liu Dawei, chairman of the Chinese Artists Association, the exhibition will feature modern, contemporary and 20th century ink paintings, generally classified into portraits, landscapes, birds, flowers, fishes, insects and animals.

It will be open to the public and admission will be free.
