Sunrise Art Center

Top choice in Shenzhen

Built from the vestiges of a century-old Hakka home, this idyllic courtyard gallery was created by Chen Qiuzhi, a contemporary ink artist from Anhui province. Several galleries display his work, and the wonderful cafe is just the spot to kick back with a tea or coffee after browsing the surrounding Dafen Oil Painting Village.
