Asian art can refer to art amongst many cultures in Asia.

Many modern Asian artists seek to blend ancient Asian themes with contemporary artistic styles. Contemporary Chinese artist Kong Bai Ji, who is one example of this trend, has long been regarded as one of the pioneers of China's contemporary art movement. He is credited with being the first Chinese artist to employ the use of western-style oil paint on traditional Chinese rice paper, and he is well known for rendering images of Buddha in a highly modernized style. Kong Bai Ji's works are included in the permanent collections of The Art Institute of Chicago, Lincoln Center in New York, The China National Art Gallery in Beijing, The Shanghai Art Museum, Harvard University, The Soyanzi Art Museum in Tokyo, The Peace Museum in Hokkaido, Japan, and the sacred Kinpusen-Ji Temple in Nara, Japan--a designated Japanese national treasure.
