The primary goal of establishing Nikei Fine Art is to share its fine works of arts from Japan and Asia with the public.

The current showcase of artworks features three Japanese artists which include Nuit Sano, Kuni Ohtsuka, Tomoko Sekino and a Chinese artist Chen Jiang Hong. One of the highlights of the opening was Tomoko’s theme series of 3-piece painting “Fairies in two worlds”.  The theme focus is about growing up and making choices as one matures. Not forgetting to mention Kuni’s two artworks that remind the audience of the mythical Roman goddess of spring and flowers. His works displays a focus of Western flavours are unique and mysterious.
