“In the past 18 months I’ve closely worked with Kyoto Art Gallery as their dedicated account manager at Artsy, I have witnessed their presence and influence grow exponentially in the online global art market scene.

Their passion and dedication to reach the global art audience through new works and shows are unparalleled. In fact, they proudly boast the first place in terms of the total number of work uploads among all Japanese galleries subscribed to Artsy. They carefully curate and thematize their program to make art more accessible for everyone.

Kyoto Art Gallery is often discussed internally at Artsy as a success case to inspire other galleries. I look very much forward to continuing to work with KAG and see them thrive in the global online art market!”
