Diversity has been at the heart of the BIAB for the past 15 years. And it is committed to demonstrating not only the variety of artistic creation but also different voices, especially those from less-developed areas, says Xu Li, vice-chairman of the China Artists Association.

BIAB cares for artists who need international exposure, he says.

Damdinsuren hails from a family of artists. His two daughters are artists, too.

He says he has exhibited in Australia, South Korea and Europe and he hopes that more Mongolian artists can show their works globally, so that art can be a profession with good prospects for young people and their families.

For Asmara, this is his fourth BIAB having first exhibited in 2008.

The 35-year-old from Bali says that although Indonesia has in recent years witnessed a boom in its art scene, artists still find it difficult to find collectors for their works.

He says exhibitions like the BIAB bring more attention to Indonesian art.
