Gregg Baker Asian Art
A Lifetime of Mandala
– 30 Years Later –
Gregg Baker Asian Art established in 1985 specialises in Japanese art. Our mission is to promote the beauty and versatility of Japanese art focusing on antique Japanese screens, early Buddhist sculpture and classical works of art. The gallery now shows works from the post-war era and carries abstract painting, sculpture and calligraphy by leading Japanese artists of the mid-20th century.
We have been holding regular exhibitions at the gallery and participating in several international art fairs which include TEFAF Maastricht, TEFAF New York Fall, Frieze Masters and Asian Art in London.
The gallery is instrumental in building collections for an international clientele and museums in Great Britain, U.S.A., Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates and Japan.
In an effort to raise awareness of Japanese art, Gregg Baker lectures to students of the British Museum, V&A, SOAS (University of London), Sotheby’s Institute of Art and Christie’s Education.
The year 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the artist’s death. Celebrating this special year, we are presenting a virtual solo exhibition of Suda Kokuta (1906-1990), one of the most important post-war artists of Japan. Realising the Zen philosophy is the epitome of abstraction, Suda expressed its inner world by painting abstract works for over 20 years, from 1949 to 1970. The selected pieces in this show presented by Gregg Baker Asian Art represent the height of his artistic expression. Decades after his passing, the energy and vibration imbued in these powerfully spiritual works still continues to captivate the viewer today.
