Japanese Bamboo Art

Thomsen Gallery is delighted to participate again in Design Miami / Basel showing Japanese bamboo art. If you are in Switzerland during the Art Basel week, please visit them in Hall 1 Süd, Messe Basel, at Booth G24. They have a limited number of admission tickets available.

Their exhibition at Design Miami / Basel, featuring more than 30 works, covers every aspect of the art as it has evolved over the past century: masterpieces from the first half of the 20th century, regarded as the Golden Age of Japanese basketry, through contemporary works by the current bamboo masters. Included are bamboo ikebana baskets by the most prestigious names in the history of Japanese bamboo art: Rōkansai, Chikuryōsai, Chikuunsai, and Chikubōsai. We are also proud to feature three of the six artists who have received the high honor in Japan of being named a Living National Treasures of Basketry: Iizuka Shōkansai, Made Chikubōsai II, and Katsuhiro Sōhō.
