Yukari Mitsuma might have gotten a taste for art from her father, who for years ran a Tokyo gallery featuring edgy, new artists. She too decided to make a career out of her passion, working at Gallery Es in Omotesando before starting Yukari Art in 2007. There, she shows only artists of her generation, believing she can understand their work more fully. If her artists share certain points of reference, though, they produce a wide range of unique and contemporary paintings, sculptures, and photographs. The work of Hideaki Shibata and Kazuya Matsunaga—sculptures of animals and organic structures made from trash and other found objects—is always a big hit. Other artists shown at Yukari Art include Shintaro Ohata, Ami Ko, and Akira Yoshida.
