Of all the master printers from Japan, the land of printmaking, four artists stand out as the greatest of the 20th century.
Nagai Gallery in Ginza, Tokyo, is proud to announce our new international art programme. To meet the growing interest in Japanese art around the world we shall be launching an English language series on our YouTube channel to introduce Nippon art to people outside of Japan.
Nagai Gallery was established by my father in 1971 to display contemporary Japanese art. While we have exhibited the works of some of the most renowned artists from around Japan, we have always had a strong ethos of searching for new and lesser-known artists and providing a stage for them to show their talent.
We have built a very good reputation in Japan but for many years it has been a dream of mine to bring Japanese art to a more global audience. It is only now that the world has become so interconnected through social media however that this has seemed possible.
I look forward to sharing with you some of the art that has been such an important part of my life. Art in Japan has a long and rich heritage yet only a very few Japanese artists have become truly world renowned. I hope you will be surprised and impressed by the art being created today in Japan.
Our motto is Art for Life and, whether you are looking for a piece to display at home or are looking for an investment opportunity, I believe there is something for everyone at our gallery.
I am looking forward to welcoming you to Nagai Gallery in our upcoming YouTube series.
