The chart above shows the artists who had the biggest increases in the number of collectors inquiring about their work on Artsy in September, month over month. Among them is
, the Nagano-born, Brooklyn-based artist who is perhaps best known for his riotously colorful portrayals of poodles. Last month at The Armory Show
, Jack Hanley Gallery
sold the four new paintings by Kamijo in its booth for $45,000 apiece. His work is also garnering increasingly competitive bidding on the secondary market, with all of his top five auction results coming in the past year. Most impressively, his painting For Your Love
(2020) sold for $93,750—more than six times its high estimate—when it went under the hammer to benefit RxArt at a Christie’s sale in May. A month later, at Phillips, the 2018 work on paper Chasing
sold for $94,500, eking out a new auction record for Kamijo.
