Kiyo Bank presents UNKNOWN ASIA 2022 will be held from October 14 (Fri.) - 16 (Sun.), 2022 [Preview: October 14 (Fri.)] at Grand Front Osaka Knowledge Capital Congres Convention Center.

UNKNOWN ASIA is an artist's art fair launched in 2015. Artists from Japan and other Asian countries continue to gather in Osaka to present their art works. The first edition in 2015 was held at the Osaka Central Public Hall in Nakanoshima, Osaka. From 2016 to 2018, it was held at HERBIS HALL (Umeda, Osaka), and from 2019, it will be held at the Grand Front Osaka Knowledge Capital Congres Convention Center. In 2019, the event attracted a record 12,928 visitors with a record 300 artists exhibiting, one of the largest ever. In 2020, the fair will be held online for the first time, and in 2021, a hybrid art fair combining the venue and online will be held, presenting new values that are not bound by existing concepts.

UNKNOWN ASIA has provided various opportunities for artists from diverse countries and genres. Artists can use UNKNOWN ASIA as an opportunity for business matching with sponsors, communication with judges and reviewers who lead the creative scene in their countries, and encounters with many visitors including collectors. We prepare for the fair with the utmost care, ensuring a safe and secure environment and providing easy access to the works not only for the artists, but also for the sponsors, judges, reviewers, and visitors.

We are looking for artists to participate in this year's art fair, which transcends genres and countries, including contemporary art, photography, graphic design, illustration, fashion, and more. UNKNOWN ASIA continues to attract Asian artists who continue to create with potential and motivation.
“From Osaka to Asia. From Asia to Osaka." Challenge your potential at UNKNOWN ASIA.
