Zen Oriental Design ABN: 6466 1070 230

Zen Oriental Design Arts and Education Consultancy was established in 1987 within an existing business specializing in Asian arts and antiques since 1967. At that time, Alan Myren, from the Indian Section of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, quickly established himself as Adelaide’s leading Asian Arts and antiques dealer. He drew upon his skills from the time he was a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society, lecturer in Asian Art for the Museum, London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies, (as well as studying Sanskrit) and worked for the Archaeological Survey of India. In 1982 Lee Grafton joined the gallery and together they developed an adjunct business specialising in designing tours to Asia for those with enquiring minds, a desire to experience Asia and to learn, understand and appreciate.
