Curated Collection: Japanese Contemporary

Enjoy our top picks of Japanese Contemporary Art from the artnet Gallery Network. Discover a diverse selection of traditional and new Japanese artworks.

Japanese aesthetics have a long-standing tradition of simplicity, stark beauty, symbolism, and an idealized approach to portraiture.

Inspiration from the natural landscape and philosophical beliefs have dominated Japanese Art from its inception. Contemporary Japanese artists play on these traditions by using today's cultural landscape and a tumultuous history as subject matter. The world of technology, pop-culture, overt eroticism depicted in anime and manga, sensationalism, superficiality, and commercialism culminate in an explosive and provocative collection of work, juxtaposing the subdued, graceful, and ancient artistic tradition.

Browse artnet's selection of Asian Art in our marketplace, and browse the artnet Calendar to discover local events and view these artworks in person.
