Koyo Bank presents UNKNOWN ASIA 2020, which will be held online this year.
There is information sessions and portfolio reviews before the deadline for artists to participate.

In the New Normal era, online art presentation and sale of artworks will undoubtedly become a global standard.
What does it take to make your work attractive and effective at an online art fair?
UNKNOWN ASIA producers Yoshihiro Taniguchi, Takeshi Ishikawa and Ryo Takahashi will look at your work and give a public review.

Participating artists will not only be able to review their own work, but will also be able to see the reviews of other participating artists, which will lead to hints and motivation for their work.
If you are an artist who is considering submitting a work to UNKNOWN ASIA 2020, we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.
