Tokyo Art-Holic is an online platform based in Tokyo that operates the largest number of artworks in the Japanese primary art market.

Our purpose is to bridge undiscovered emerging Japanese artists to the world by introducing their exquisite works on digital platforms. We contact 1,000+ emerging Japanese artists and cover on-going exhibitions to provide you the latest and authentic artworks.

Thisis Inc. launched the service in 2015 for domestic collectors and has sold 20,000 artworks annually.

In response to receiving many more orders from overseas recently, we have launched Tokyo Art-Holic in 2020 for international collectors seeking to find unique and intriguing artworks born in Japan.

We envision to expand this primary art market to the world and contribute to the development of Japanese art.

From my 15 years of experience living abroad, I felt a big gap between Japan and overseas in how people interact with art, such as those in Japan not often buying art and being unfamiliar with contemporary art, with a history centered on the West.

In order to fill in this gap, we devised an artwork online-shopping service "this is gallery".

2019 Director of Co., Ltd.

Akari Takada

She enrolled in an art school aspiring to be an artist, but later found herself more interested in the art market and selling artworks.

Aspiring to be a gallerist, she joined in 2017.

While she is the executive producer of “this is gallery” and “ART-Meter”, she is also the editor-in-chief of “this is media”, an art media magazine with a monthly audience of more than 10 million people.

She devised an online gallery “tokyo art-holic,” aiming to expand sales channels overseas.
