6 – 13 October 2020 | London | full auction details

This October, Sotheby’s London will present our first-ever online sale dedicated to contemporary Japanese prints, multiples and photographs. 

The inaugural auction will feature works by Japan’s most internationally-acclaimed artists: Yoshitomo Nara, Takashi Murakami and Yayoi Kusama and other iconic printmakers, each artist synthesising Japanese and Western popular culture with their own signature aesthetic.


In a striking contrast, the sale will also include a curated selection of provocative, stark and visceral photographs from Japan’s most celebrated contemporary photographers: Nobuyoshi Araki, Rinko Kawauchi and Daido Moriyama, alongside highly coveted and rare Photobooks.

Responding to the current appetite for these international artworld superstars, Sotheby’s is bringing the subcultures of otaku, anime, manga, kawaii and kinbaku to London, from Japan with love.
