Kawata Gallery was incorporated in Kobe in 1963 by founder Tsutomu Kawata as a gallery specialized in modern paintings. For more than half a century since its foundation, we have proudly dedicated ourselves to introducing countless masterpieces. Since the earliest days, our business focused on the sale of paintings through art section of the department stores. More recently, we have been working on the discovery and support of emerging young talents through the launch of original art fairs, as well as participation in art fairs at home and abroad. Art is long, life is short – in the spirit of this proverb, we continue to commit ourselves to delivering more artworks that resonate with people’s heart for generations to come without losing ourselves in the tide of time.
