Sato Sakura Gallery
Having opened its doors to the public this August, Sato Sakura Gallery is the first foreign branch of the Sato Sakura Museum specializing in showcasing contemporary “nihonga”. Translated into “Japanese painting”, nihonga is a style of painting developed in Japan which is unique in the way it uses mineral pigment. While true to the basics of nihonga, contemporary nihonga artists also employ techniques and aesthetics influenced by Western arts. At the inaugural exhibition, nihonga collections by 14 artists are on display in the gallery, all of which take their theme from sakura (cherry blossoms).
