The Hurun Research Institute launched the Hurun Most Successful Chinese Living Artists 2020 this June, a ranking of the top 100 Chinese artists alive today based on the sales of their works at public auction in the year ending 31 December 2019. CAFA National Institute of Art and Cultural Policy provided the data. This is the thirteenth consecutive year of the Hurun China Art List .

 

In 2019, the volume of China's art market shrank and prices were flat, with a low transaction rate. Specifically, 363,600 works went up for auction, but only 161,500 were sold. The transaction value was CNY$49.2bn, with a transaction rate of 44%, which was the lowest since 2010 (according to Art Market Monitor of ARTRON). Looking at the Hurun China Art List 2020, the total turnover, the average turnover, the entry threshold and the number of artists whose annual turnover exceeds CNY$100mn all showed a downward trend.

 

Rupert Hoogewerf, Chairman and Chief Researcher of Hurun Report, said: “In the past 13 years, only 265 artists have made the Hurun China Art List , of which 24 have since passed away. This should give readers confidence that significantly all of the best living artists in China make the list sooner or later.”

 

“It’s been a bad year for the China contemporary art market, with the cut-off to make our list to its lowest since records began in 2008.”

Founded in 2015, Hurun Art Foundation is a media platform which focus on Chinese contemporary art. Depending on the combination of Hurun Report and Hurun China Art List , we provide a full range of promotion channels for contemporary artists, including magazine, website and exhibitions. We have discovered that contemporary artists are the most promising ones among all types of artists in China, in terms of their active thoughts and broad vision. They also are very diligent, and they have great passion about art. We are responsible and feel obliged to build a wider platform, in order to help promote them and their outstanding works. For this purpose, we interviewed Chinese artists who are active in the United States and Switzerland; we signed long-term and strategic cooperation agreement with artists in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu; we keep promoting one or two contemporary artists every month on Hurun Report Magazine by analyzing their works and providing some insights. Our purpose is to help the wealth elites of China to learn more about the value of Chinese contemporary art, thus we connect art and wealth.

 

About Hurun Report Inc.

 

Promoting Entrepreneurship through Quality Lists and Research

Hurun Report generated 300 million views globally each month on average last year, through putting out quality lists and research.

 

Established in 1999, Hurun Report Inc. has grown into a leading research platform based in Shanghai and Mumbai, best-known for its China and India rich lists, and with 150 employees today.

 

Hurun Research Institute ‘World’s Largest Rich List Provider’

These past twenty years have seen the fastest wealth creating period in the history of the world.

 

Other lists Hurun puts out include: the Hurun Richest Self-Made Women in the World has been highlighting for over ten years the fact that over 70% of the world’s most successful women in business herald from China, ie Chinese are completely dominant in the world of women in business. This has changed the way the world looks at Chinese women in business.

 

The Hurun China Philanthropy List ranks the most generous individuals in China and is now in its 15th anniversary.  With no inheritance tax, Chinese give much more generously than many have previously understood.

 

Two recent lists with an impact include the Hurun China Unicorn Index, ranking the most dynamic businesses with a valuation of US$1bn or more in China; and the Hurun Most Successful University Alumni.

 

In India, Hurun Research has launched the Hurun India Rich List for the seventh time last year, and has an active events business there.

 

‘World Authority on the Chinese High Net Worth Individual’

Recent research partners include financial institutions (PingAn, Bank of China, Taikang Life, Minsheng, Citic), local government (Shanghai, Changbaishan) and Global 500 multinationals (Marriott, Country Garden, Agile, Audi, Volvo).

 

Three breakthrough lists this past year: Hurun Good Doctors’ List, a ranking of the 9500 most respected doctors in China, broken down by region and speciality; Hurun Best International Schools List; and Hurun Creative Works Intellectual Property List, in Search of the Harry Potter of China, ranking those online novels with the most valuable IPs.

 

The Hurun China Art List ranks the top artists alive today in China for the 12th year and has become a household name amongst artists.

 

Media and Events ‘The Hurun brand gets 300 million views a month in China’

The Hurun brand has become one of the few media brands to become a household name across China and India.

 

Hurun Media monetizes 2 million views a month in China, through its wechat, weibo, website and legacy magazine.

 

Recent themed events include blockchain, fintech and 30 under 30, with industry-respected awards. We deliver 100+ events a year in China, with 200 entrepreneurs from the Hurun China Rich List attending.
