Ai Yamaguchi's work has become some of the most sought after contemporary art in Japan for her powerful and beautiful depicton of the lives of young female prostitutes in the Edo period. Her fine etchings and lithographs embody themes of sexuality and eroticism - beautifully infusing influences of Japanese subculture with sensitivity to works of the Edo art period.

I've bought several pieces from Kumi - it's my go to gallery for contemporary Japanese art! Very knowledgeable, and great service. Highly recommended.

Chris at Kumi was great to deal with . He always replied promptly to emails and communicated clearly . He kindly arranged a viewing and as well as being welcoming and hospitable , he also spoke with passion and knowledge about the art and the artist . He arranged shipping and the process was smooth and efficient . I would be happy to do business with Kumi again . I am very happy with my experience and the art I purchased .

I had the pleasure to buy 2 Takashi Murakami prints from Chris. The whole experience was very pleasant and convenient. Chris answered e-mails immediately and always with a friendly approach. The art arrived quite quickly and very well wrapped so it doesn’t get damaged on the way.
I hope I can continue to order some more Japanese art works from Kumi in the near future.

Chris at Kumi Contemporary is a passionate and talented curator of fine art pieces. He made the international payment process seamless and the two offset lithographs I ordered were flat-shipped and arrived in great condition. Furthermore, Chris was excellent at maintaining efficient communication with any questions I had during the purchasing process and in regards to keeping the artwork in pristine condition. Take a look at the artwork on his website--any question at all, however stupid you may find it, he's available to help you wrap your head around making a fine art purchase and how you can make best use of the piece. I felt so out of my depth when I first inquired, but his patience and expertise made the purchasing experience so much easier. Thank you!
