Wawi Navarroza’s I Want To Live A Thousand More Years (Self-Portrait After Dengue, with tropical plants and fake flowers) has bested entries from Asia and is included in the last 30 Finalists for the Sovereign Asian Art Prize 2018 to culminate in May 2018.
Held annually, the Sovereign Asian Art Prize invites mid-career contemporary artists - nominated by a carefully selected board of independent art experts from the region. Entries are then shortlisted by a small judging panel consisting of world-class art specialists, who select the best 30 artworks to be exhibited in Hong Kong.
Public Exhibition : April 26 — May 5, 2018
HART Hall at H Queen’s, G/F 80 Queen’s Road, Hong Kong
The Grand Prize winner will be revealed at the annual Gala Dinner in Hong Kong. All artworks are then auctioned to the public - with the exception of the winning entry, which becomes the property of the Foundation and is used to further its charitable aims.

About the Sovereign Art Foundation:
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 underprivileged children. “The beauty of our model is that we are able to achieve both goals in an eminently sustainable way. The Sovereign Asian Art Prize, now recognised as the most prestigious prize in its field and region, raises funds by auctioning those artworks that reach the final stage of the competition. The proceeds are then shared equally between the artists and the Foundation, to be used for our charitable projects across Asia.”
