The differences in age, background, geographical locations and culture all play a part in the works of the exhibition, resulting in a wide variety of artworks, causing a rich and constantly changing picture.

Through the past 5 years, the influence of Shanghai New Ink Art Exhibition has been rapid and huge. This is seen from the original exhibition with the theme Unity of Heaven, Earth and Human in 2005, to the 2nd exhibition Renewable Ink in 2006, to the 3rd exhibition Exploration in 2007, to the current exhibition Ink Art Today, as well as from the original three artists to the approximately 70 overseas and Chinese artists working together in this current exhibition.
