About Larasati Auctioneers

Since Larasati's first auction held on 30 April 2000 in Jakarta, Indonesia, the regional auction house’s reputation has grown rapidly for auctioning rare and emerging Indonesian as well as other Asian works at record prices. In 2003, Larasati marked a milestone in its pursuit to become a major player in the Asian market, with its entry into Singapore and becoming the first Asian-based auction house that crossed national borders.

In 2009, Larasati became the first auction house from Southeast Asia to enter Hong Kong, the third largest auction market in the world. In view of growth opportunities and successful operations over the last 15 years, Larasati is expanding under One Larasati Arts. In November 2017, Larasati entered European market by conducting her initial sale in London.

Currently, Larasati manages its auctions in four different countries: Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom.

In line with LARASATI’s aim to feature significant works of Indonesian and other Asian fine art, the Larasati’s boutique collection of July 2018 will reflect the evolution and recent development of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian art and therefore the auction will not only become a matter of buying and selling art, but also enhance the appreciation of art in the region.

Colour Me Well

"Colour Me Well"

Tomoni Shintaku solo exhibition

Tomoni Shintaku’s concept of food rationing is unique. His artworks are stunningly and beautifully original. Using food as the main object of his paintings, he showcases the issues that people face in this modern life.

Colour Me Well puts together a combination of colours and patterns in three series.

Tomoni Shintaku presents his idea of food through patterns, playing around the idea of how food is not just a daily necessity in this modern day. His use of bright colours seems to encapsulate this idea as it magnifies the frivolousness of the food items presented, such as cakes which is considered a luxurious food. The repetition seems to suggest that people in this modern society take for granted the value of food even though eating is necessary for survival.

This is Tomoni Shintaku first solo exhibition with One East Asia gallery.


About Artist, Tomoni Shintaku

Born in Hiroshima, Japan in 1982, Tomoni Shintaku is a contemporary artist who attained his bachelor in Kyushu Sangyo University of Art, Fukuoka in 2005 and continued to pursue his culinary education in Shinjuku Culinary Institute, Tokyo in 2013. Influenced by the relationship of art and food, he draws connections between modern day society and cultures. His paintings are characterised by patterns and motifs revolving around the value and price of convenience in this fast paced society. Shintaku’s works were exhibited in various places across Japan. His most recent award was the Artmore Award Izaki Prize which was presented to him early this year. Shintaku currently lives and works in Singapore.
