“The way chrysanthemum petals form in a consistent, logical pattern and how bugs gather on these flowers expresses the natural state of the world. The pearlescent paint shines like light and water pouring down onto the paper dependent on the viewing angle. Although the water used to apply this paint has evaporated, its existence remains in the shapes of droplets.”

“Plum blossoms have such a strong scent that their presence can be felt even during the night. In this painting, the moon represents nighttime and the sky is filled with gold to represent the scent of plum blossom.
This piece also represents modern-day Japan. The name of Japan’s current era, Reiwa, is based on a poem in the Man'yōshū:
It was in new spring, in a fair (rei) month,
When the air was clear and the wind a gentle (wa) breeze.
Plum flowers blossomed a beauty's charming white
And the fragrance of the orchids was their sweet perfume.”

‘Notification of Sato Sakura Gallery New York Recess’


On July 31st, 2022, Sato Sakura Gallery New York will be temporarily shutting its doors for a prolonged recess.

Sato Sakura Gallery opened its doors in 2017 with the intent of bringing contemporary Nihonga to people around the world and promote the artform outside of Japan.

Since our opening, we are proud to have welcomed countless guests to the gallery; through our world class exhibitions and market sales, we have endeavoured to share the beauty and allure of Nihonga to our New York City and international patrons alike.

Although visiting our flagship became more difficult in the wake of the global pandemic started in 2020, overall enjoyment of our collection by regular patrons and newcomers alike has remained strong.

We are honoured and humbled to have been able to share our collection with everyone who visited us over the five years since we opened 2017 and that you were as captivated by Nihonga Japanese painting as we are.

Therefore, having achieved what we initially set out to do, we have decided to spend some time considering the ideal state for our New York initiative. Although we will be temporarily closed, we would like to start with a new concept and re-introduce Nihonga Japanese painting to the world once again.

We extend our most sincere gratitude to for your patronage until now, and look forward to your continued support of our mission at Sato Sakura Museum until we meet again.

Most sincerely,

Sato Sakura Gallery New York

“Okawara associates light music with the point in spring that plants begin to sprout from the ground. The color gradation on the tulip petals and how they shoot up from the ground invoke the sound of music. This piece is called ‘Spring Road’ since tulips are thought to usher in this season.”

“These adorable little chrysanthemums that bloom in autumn have a wonderful scent. At this time of year, it’s still warm where the sun shines but cold in the shade. The right side of this painting shows a moment in which the sunlight is strong, while the green on the left shows the approach of winter.”

I am particularly partial to this flower and it’s fragrance.
I wanted to compose a work with a dramatic sense of movement, and so I posed the cat just as it is about to jump out of a thicket of daffodils.”

“Although quail are often used as motifs in Japanese Nihonga painting, it was also one of the prompt motifs I was assigned during my entrance exams for Tokyo University of the Arts. I passed the exam which in turn was the first-step in my path to becoming a painter. Therefore to this day I sometimes draw quail to ensure that I never lose sight of where I come from as an artist, and is why I chose to name this painting, First Step.”

Our Story

Sato Sakura Gallery is a private Japanese fine art gallery and dealer based in Chelsea New York specializing in rare Japanese paintings -Nihonga- from renowned artists born after the start of the Showa-era (1926). Exhibitions are carefully curated to feature both post-war masters, and artwork from the greatest emerging Nihonga artists of today. In doing so, Sato Sakura Gallery New York aims to showcase the compelling beauty of contemporary Nihonga Japanese paintings both past, and present.

A world leader in Nihonga Japanese paintings, our parent institution- Sato Sakura Museum- was founded in October 2006 in Koriyama city, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. Since the opening of our second flagship location in the Meguro neighborhood of Tokyo, Sato Sakura Museum has hosted an annual competition called ‘The Ōkasho Awards’ to identify rising Nihonga Japanese painting masters. Winners of this prestigious accolade are chosen by our panel of experts and top-ranking post-war masters, and have their works introduced into the permanent collections of our museum and gallery - right alongside some of Japan’s greatest cultural treasures.

As our third expansion and first international flagship -opened in September 2017 - Sato Sakura Gallery New York proudly holds four seasonal exhibitions a year; each curation featuring hand selected works from our vast portfolio of masters and rising artists alike. Combined with our innovative shows and events, expert onsite and remote consultations, and unparalleled passion for contemporary Japanese fine art, we continue to be a true destination for Japanese art enthusiasts, collectors, and newcomers alike.
