About The Yokai “Kamikiri”
“This little yokai is called the Kamikiri, the hair cutter, a mischievous hair thief demon who appears out of nowhere and loves to snap off locks of people’s hair unexpectedly. I read somewhere that these creature sometimes cut the hair of young women before their wedding day, to prevent the marriage from happening! But don’t worry, they only do it, if the bride is about the marry a bad person!” -Székely Beáta

A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020! Our Business Hour Changes

IMG_1744

2020 is coming very soon!

Thank you very much for all visit to AG Gallery throughout the year 2019. If you made it to any of our exhibitions in 2019, we very appreciate because that is one of the biggest supports and joy for us to curate exhibitions at our gallery.

We believe being an art collector is not something special today that only limited people can do, in a way that we have access to art and artists from many different ways, such as  SNS and online stores, that we did not have before. We believe becoming an art collector, however, is something special that adds fruitful qualities to our everyday life.

AG Gallery is excited for the new year to present new artworks from our gallery artists, as well as to introduce new artists to you all. We hope our gallery will continuously serve as a place to connect artists to our visitors in 2020 even more than 2019.
