Preserving and handing down culture – a new mode of communication
Since its founding, TERRADA has focused on preservation and storage. In recent years, we have pursued a deeper concept of "storage," moving beyond an emphasis on tangible things to embrace the preservation and handing down of intangible culture and tradition itself.
Through our art promotion business, we set the stage for new forms of cultural creation by cultivating the legacy of traditional techniques and materials, providing support for emerging artists, and managing art galleries and studios.
- A traditional materials lab revisioning the now. We offer rare materials of superb quality and a highly knowledgeable staff of experts in art materials ready to offer guidance on the characteristics and application methods for each material.
- T-ART ACADEMY
- Workshops run by professionals, designed to leverage our unique materials. From art hobbyists and enthusiasts to professional creators and researchers, all artists are welcome to join us in studying the materials and their corresponding techniques.
- T-ART GALLERY
