We’d like like to begin our very first post by welcoming you to Kumi Contemporary. Kumi has been our passion for the last few years and we are overjoyed to have finally launched the website.
Kumi Contemporary was conceived with the primary aim of sharing the beauty of Japanese Contemporary art with collectors and enthusiasts alike.
Kumi literally means ‘everlasting beauty‘ – a testament to the beautiful artwork and a remarkable culture.
Japanese post-modern art is thriving. Takashi Murakami’s Superflat movement has paved the way for a newer generation of young artists: Chiho Aoshima, Mr, Ai Yamaguchi. Japanese influences in the street art have helped shape a new art movement. Graffiti artists Aiko Nakagawa and Hush are two of the most recognisable names in the industry.
We’ll be updating the blog with our new artwork and also bringing you the latest Japanese Contemporary art news. You can subscribe to our RSS feed by clicking the RSS icon and sign-up to our newsletter using the link at the top.
We love hearing and talking about Japanese Art – so whether you’re a collector or an enthusiast, send us an email to say hello.
If you would like one of our postcards send us your name and address using the contact form on the website and we’ll send one straight out to you.
