Founder Profile – Ikkan Sanada

Between 1971 and 1977, Ikkan Sanada worked at Galerie Tamenaga France, the first Japanese gallery in Paris dedicated to bringing major European paintings to Japan. In 1977, he was appointed Director of administration and import/export. From 1977 to 1979, he moved back to Tamenaga, Tokyo as Director of import operations.

Thereafter, Mr Sanada was a partner of Kinda Bijutsu, Inc. in Tokyo, an artdealership highly focused on providing assistance and consultancy to select Japanese collectors in forming their art collections. He left the successful partnership in the summer of 1980 to study Art History and Arts Administration at New York University.

1982 saw the incorporation of Ikkan Art International with Mr Sanada as itsowner and president. Involved with the purchasing and selling of Modern and Contemporary works of art, Ikkan Art deals for its own account and on behalf of its international clients, who include key individual and corporate collectors, galleries, private deals, investors and auction houses. Ikkan Art also provides advisory services to both private and corporate clients inacquiring and exchanging their art holdings, in particular between Japan andthe U.S. markets.

In 2011, spurred by a quiet confidence of the emergence of Southeast Asia as the key market for quality art, he moves to Singapore to set up a new base with the vision to present museum-quality works through his gallery into the region.
