Collect 2009 - Live Update

Staff from both Toku Art and Yufuku are in London at this very moment exhibiting at the Collect Art Fair 2009, and today marks the morning before the 2nd official day of the event.

Before the start of Collect on Thursday (preview night), we were slightly worried as to the economic climate of Britain and the EU. Yet to our pleasant surprise, we have reconfirmed that the demand for the very best in contemporary Japanese art continues to be strong. Tall and abundant praise has been given to us from new and old clients in regards to this year's collection of artworks (which took me a year to assemble), and towards the display/layout of our stand. With works by Nagae Shigekazu, Takeyama Naoki, Ikuta Niyoko and Takagaki Atsushi selling out during the 1st day alone, I think it's already safe to say that this year's show is another success.

Furthermore, we are pleased to announce that the Victoria & Albert Museum has purchased a seminal work of glass by Ikuta Niyoko for their permanent collection. As you can see by the image below, the work was acquired through the Art Fund Collective, which is an excellent competition-based public fund given to museums in order to acquire art for their collection.

Congratulations to Ikuta-san!

There are now 2 more days left of the 3-day fair. I truly look forward to welcoming you to our humble stand.

From London skies,
