Nanzuka is an art gallery founded by Shinji Nanzuka in 2005 in the city of Tokyo. Since then, the art gallery has been notorious for its commitment to support Japanese artists and assist them while collaborating with several international galleries.
Nanzuka actually has a variety of branches around Japan. The main one was the one in Tokyo, of course, as it was the first one to be founded. In Hong Kong you can find the branch called AISHONANZUKA, which is a joint gallery alongside Aisho Miura Arts.
It has worked with contemporary national artists like Hiroki Tsukuda, Ryuichi Ohira, Makoto Taniguchi and Haroshi, as well as international figures. Nanzuka galleries are not only a stone pillar in the art business, but also in the fashion, music and design industries.
This year the Japan-based gallery was part of the Art Basel Hong Kong, showcasing a surreal installment featuring a dozen artists, such as Indonesian painter Roby Dwi Antono, cartoonist Katherine Bernhardt, New Zealander artist Jess Johnson and Swedish artist Joakim Ojanen.
On top of that, Nanzuka has recently announced a new flagship gallery (Nanzuka Underground) which will be located in Jingumae Shibuya Tokyo, near United Arrows Harajuku. The new branch features a custom paint facade by Tetsuya Nakamura and a design emblem by Hajime Sorayama.
The first exhibition will be held on June 5th presenting a selection of artwork by Masato Mori. The following exhibitions will include works from Haroshi, Christian Rex van Minnen, and Wahab Saheed. We are definitely looking forward to all of them.
Take a look at its website to get a closer insight on dates and tickets. While you are here, check out Ioan Florea’s 3D-printed NFT art collection and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition that will be held in Texas as of June 11th.
