The appetite for Chinese art and culture has grown considerably in the last decade. This unique Asian style is steeped in tradition, dating back centuries and based largely on the craft of calligraphy. Today’s Chinese artists embrace this heritage, while infusing their works with their own contemporary interpretations. ArtCatto, together with Conrad Algarve, celebrate this artistry with a cultural event and exhibition, complete with dancing lions, music, martial arts, Chinese cuisine and a fireworks finale, on 26 August at 19:00.  The exhibition continues through the end of October.
