Adrian Choi

Born in 1988 in Hong Kong, Choi moved to Paris in 1995. After completing his education in London, he began his trade as a gallerist, specialising in Collectible Design from art-deco through to mid-century and modern works of art. Participating at the biggest art fairs around the world such as Design Miami and Masterpiece, Choi represented a number of established artists in the field of art and design, his ongoing relationships with them had led him to help produce unique and limited-edition pieces and establish them in the collectible design market. With a firm base of expertise in design, Choi returned to Hong Kong in 2013 to set up his own gallery and continue to pursue the production and research of new works. Spending a number of years travelling across China, from the old imperial kiln sites in Jingdezhen to the turquoise mines in Henan, Choi has discovered and brought together a unique combination of highly skilled resources to challenge the most complex demands of any creation.
