International Shenzhen Artist Forum or ISZAF is an independent, foreign, and local artist run artist society based in Shenzhen, China. Founded in October 2016 by a group of visual arts professionals, the organization hopes to connect visual artists and professionals of all backgrounds, styles, and disciplines within the Pearl River Delta Region of China.

ISZAF desires to establish a community of visual artists that can network with fellow peers, establish more ways to engage the community through sponsored artist events, and promote healthy economic growth of artists through local galleries and show.
