China Guardian Celebrates its 25th Anniversary

Even as the Asian auction market continues to grow, China Guardian — China’s oldest auction house is marking its silver anniversary. It now has a major presence in Hong Kong and is known for its sale of Chinese works. The current president of China Guardian (HK) Auctions is Hu Yanyan who had joined the company in 1993 as a founding member and has been listed as a Power Game Changer of the Year by Art + Auction.

“It has been seven years since our establishment in the Hong Kong auction market in 2011. Our Hong Kong specialist team has garnered valuable support from collectors mostly from Hong Kong but also from around the world. We are glad to see our team gaining a foothold locally while also reaching out on an international level. Clients’ confidence in us deepens as our understanding grows of collectors from Asia, Europe and America,” Yanyan said. “Our Asian 20th century and Contemporary Art, as well as jewelry sales this spring, saw impressive growth, which shows that our offerings were able to meet the diverse needs of Hong Kong collectors and cater to the development of the market. With the fast-paced economic development in China, Chinese buyers’ horizons have also broadened as they become increasingly willing to travel the world, which helped them gain exposure to Asian 20th century and Contemporary Art and even Western art. In order to deepen our bond with jewelry clients, we have recently launched Guardian Glamour, a private sales service that would allow clients to make purchases outside the auction season in a more intimate setting,” Yanyan adds.

She also said that the move to Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) has been the backdrop of many historic moments. “The HKCEC is the stage where extraordinary events and record breaking sales are witnessed by the world. As the first Chinese auction house to set foot in Hong Kong, we have grown immensely from offering two categories to five categories over only a few years,” she added.
