It started with a group of friends in Shanghai who gathered together for painting at our homes. We created a Shanghai art salon

We enjoyed the lifestyle options in Shanghai: Trying restaurants, clubbing, bar hopping, going to yoga, but found things were becoming routine. Something was really missing as Shanghai seemed to be a cultural vacuum. Yearning for creative times or moments in our lives before we arrived to Shanghai, we decided to express our creativity and vent some frustrations through art in drawing and oil painting. During our  Shanghai art salons, we drink wine, eat dessert, play music, have intellectual discussions and gossip. It greatly enriched our life and so we thought, others should really try this. That was how Sip’n’Paint was born.
