African Art Space
African Art Space（非艺）is an ambitious project art and culture project aimed at promoting friendship and cultural exchange between the people of China and Africa. By combining art and culture spaces together with F&B and cultural events, Feiyi acts as a bridge between cultures, facilitating dialogue, exchange and friendship.
Our goal is to create a network of community art spaces throughout China. The brand launched in Zhuhai because of the city’s proximity to Hong Kong and Macau as well as its art and culture-friendly policies. We currently operate two art spaces in Zhuhai, one in Panyu, Guangzhou and the latest one on Dadonghai Beach in Sanya, Hainan province.
The Feiyi brand manifests itself in diverse ways, as a pure art gallery or art space, a café or cocktail bar, a restaurant or a hybrid. At the heart of the brand is the desire to promote African culture and to do good through charitable donations (10% of our revenue will be donated to orphanages in China). This ethos is reflected in our approach to customer service, and our open door attitude towards cultural partnerships. As a result, every day we strive to live up to the ideals embodied in our motto: FROM AFRICA, WITH LOVE.
The Feiyi concept was conceived in Shanghai by Sahr Johnny and first launched in Zhuhai as an art gallery, together with Melody Sun, in late 2015.
