Ms Hiroko Ishinabe created the One Piece Club (OPC) in Japan in 2007 as a non-profit organization with focus on being a unique members' organization for enthusiasts and collectors of contemporary art. The OPC also serves as an exchange platform for meeting likeminded people and sharing each other's interests. Today, independent OPC chapters have been established and are active in major Asian cities including Jakarta, Singapore, and Taipei.
Founded by Ms Cathy Hau in Shanghai and with the assistance of fellow Executive Committee members Mr Yu Yu and Mr Paul Tchen, One Piece Club China’s (OPCC) vision is to foster the development of the contemporary art in China, nurture its appreciation by future generations and support living art practitioners by promoting acquisitions for private collections.
