Welcome to Asian Art Brief! I like to write about the visual arts of Asia, focusing mainly on East Asia - China, Korea and Japan.
I started this site in 2012, charting exhibits in the museums and galleries of Great Britain. Following a move to San Francisco in 2015, it has taken on a more Californian flavour.
In my professional life, I practised as a lawyer in London for several years, then studied Asian art at SOAS, University of London.
