SaiakuNana and Ignatius Rake declare ‘Punk Rock Forever’

PRESS RELEASE | ST AUSTELL, 22 JUNE 2022 — Celebrated Japanese artist SaiakuNana, who has exhibited her work in Tokyo, London and New York, has joined forces with award-winning Cornish animator and filmmaker Ignatius Rake to produce a music video that documents her must-see gallery in London’s East End before it closes this coming July 17.

“I became a fan of SaiakuNana’s work the moment I saw it at the Watari-um gallery in Tokyo,” Rake says.

“I was immediately struck by the power and vibrancy of her paintings, which combine the kawaii aesthetic of modern Japanese popular culture with the raw energy of punk rock and abstract expressionism.”

In 2018, SaiakuNana won the Grand Prize at the 21st Taro Okamoto Award for Contemporary Art, the Japanese equivalent of the UK’s Turner Prize.

Are OVRs The Future of Art Sales?

Modern advancements in digital and online technology are changing the art market. Online events are becoming more popular than ever as they can be accessed by anyone from anywhere. By simply opening a screen, people are able to instantly access desired products and services from all around the world, which makes it easier than ever to engage with your artistic interests.

The art market is no exception to this trend.
