Ota Fine Arts was first established in 1994 in Tokyo, Japan. For years on, the gallery has defined itself as being a pioneer of Japanese contemporary art, which in its portfolio includes the internationally acclaimed Yayoi Kusama. In 2012, Ota Fine Arts opened its Singapore art complex through a joint development with the Singapore Economic Development Board, JTC Corporation, and the National Arts Council. Within the complex is a creative art centre, an artist residency space, as well as selected commercial contemporary galleries mainly from the Asia-Pacific region.
The organisation prides itself to play a main role as an incubator while growing its programmes alongside East-Asian artists and organising various rich collaborations with new artists from Southeast Asia to the Middle Eastern regions.
Ota Fine Arts strongly hopes these offerings will convey the new aspect of contemporary art today.
