Inuit Art and Eskimo Art Website Launches New Japanese Pages for Customers in Japan


Montreal, Quebec, Canada -- March 9, 2006 – Free Spirit Gallery, a Montreal based online art gallery specializing in Inuit art and Eskimo art, is going international by launching new Japanese pages for its website. Overseas art customers located in Japan can now browse through the many beautiful pieces of art from Canada’s Arctic north in Japanese. Since the popularity of Canadian Inuit art and Eskimo art has been growing internationally, the new Japanese version of Free Spirit Gallery’s website will make it easier for buyers to shop for pieces without even leaving Japan. Free Spirit Gallery ships artwork from Canada directly to Japan and other overseas international locations.

Japanese tourists have always enjoyed Canada for its natural scenic beauty. The Canadian Rockies, Niagara Falls and even the autumn leaves in the trees across Canada have been strong tourist attractions for the visiting Japanese. Canadian Inuit art has been popular acquisitions for the Japanese during their travels to Canada. Through Free Spirit Gallery’s website, they can now continue to build their Inuit art collections from home back in Japan.

There’s even an informative article in the website about recognizing authentic Inuit artwork from reproductions and fakes. This article in both Japanese as well as English, will help educate tourists and novice collectors about Inuit art so that they can make wise buying decisions without ending up with just cheap tourist souvenirs.

Clint Leung, who created Free Spirit Gallery in 2004, says, “Our website is extremely informative and as more of the Japanese market discovers us, we intend to translate more of our information resource articles into Japanese in the future.”

Because of the isolation of the Arctic north, Canadian Inuit artists have always had difficulties in getting their artwork out to the rest of the world. Now with the help of Free Spirit Gallery’s new Japanese website, these talented artists can gain much needed exposure for their beautiful work in Japan, the largest consumer market in Asia.
