Welcome to Toku Art

It's difficult to deny what runs within us. I'd been in denial for nearly two years, mechanically complacent in a well-paying job. Yet something inside of me ran dry as the money poured in.

Perhaps it was some existential need for identity in a bland and faceless corporate society that brought me to realise what I had known all along. This wasn't me.

To invest everything into something one feels passionately about. To use one's faculties towards advancing a form of happiness that many had yet to touch, wished to see, and dreamt of knowing.

To do what none other can do. Not only to be different, but to make a difference.
For me, this meant returning to a life with art.

And so, Toku was born.

Toku Art Limited is built on a simple idea.
-To bring peace and happiness through the dissemination of beauty-

The characters "Toku" stand for "Eastern Skies". From the skies of Japan, we bring you the finest in Japanese contemporary art. From the conceptual to the functional, Toku embodies the aesthetic traditions of Japan until today and beyond.

We do not demarcate or divide the lines between fine art and craft art, as such is a Western notion. Japanese art encompasses all things beautiful and made by Japanese hands. We offer such to you, from eastern skies.
