Eight hundred artists, 7,000 works from Japan and more, a new worldview takes shape
When TRiCERA ART was born in 2018, the online art world was already full of art forums of all kinds. Online galleries doing millions of dollars in commerce across the world were more than plentiful. What could a new online gallery add?
So what’s new ? What’s up now?
On the one hand, a global online gallery based in Japan was unique. And it still is. In addition, it has become one of the largest of its kind in the world. From just over a hundred artists at the end of 2019, TRiCERA ART now represents more than 5,000 artists from over 100 countries. It has spread far beyond its own Japan, particularly throughout Asia. No other platform brings these artists together in a searchable marketplace and gallery.
The platform fully engages the world and its customers in eight languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, and more. It is therefore not obvious at first glance that TRiCERA ART is a Japanese platform. But there are some pretty solid clues, including extreme friendliness and speed in customer service and responsiveness; impeccable packaging for safe and undamaged delivery; an unwavering “the customer is always right” attitude to accompany its generous policy of free worldwide shipping and free 14-day returns; and the inclusion of a Certification of Authenticity on Blockchain.
If you’ve ever spent time in Japan, you know that there is a dimension to these virtues that is more about culture than business strategy. But as the popularity of Japanese cultural artifacts and pop culture escalates through Japanese games, manga, food, and all that is cute, international art lovers are finding an important window to Japan through. TRiCERA ART.
What makes this opportunity to connect with Japan unique is the direct link to the work, vision and experience of individual artists in the country, which inevitably offers a deeper, albeit more subtle, sense of themselves and where they live.
Artists like Hiroki Takeda, for example, are surely representative of Japan’s reputation for exquisite attention to detail, in watercolor, nothing less. Takeda is no stranger to cute either, as his depictions of some of the most feared creatures wouldn’t be complete under his brush without the presence – really, the essential makeup – of something like a butterfly and delicate flora in it. abundance of vibrant hues.
We also look forward to mentioning the incredible artistry of Ishii Nobuo, whose works of painting and sculpture combine many styles into a greater whole that can be compared to Japan’s historical mastery of many styles and techniques originating in outside its borders. And Ishii didn’t turn her creative potential into fine art until she turned 60!
Equally popular is Todoroki Tomohiro on TRiCERA ART, which finds a way to unapologetically infuse cute into the most rickety lines you’ll ever see enclosing solid fields of boldly contrasting colors.
“The popularity of contemporary art is booming in the global market, and it’s also booming here in Japan,” says Tai Iguchi, CEO of TRiCERA, Inc. “But many great artists remain hidden. They might even be our best and TRiCERA is here to give them a chance to reach the world.
“And we’re here to give the world a chance to meet the artists,” Iguchi continues. “TRiCERA ART started out with a passion to find great new artists. We found a lot of them! And we are just as passionate as we were at the beginning to find more.
