The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) was established in 2003 with a well-defined twin focus: to recognise the growing wealth of contemporary art talent in Asia and bring the proven benefits of expressive arts to disadvantaged children. The beauty of this model is that we can achieve both goals in an eminently sustainable way. The Sovereign Asian Art Prize – now the largest and most established contemporary art prize in Asia-Pacific – raises funds by auctioning artworks that reach the final stage of the competition. Proceeds are then shared equally between the artists and the Foundation, to fund charitable projects across Asia.
