ABOUT THE COLLECTOR

DMITRY TUBIS

Passionate Netsuke Dealer and Advocate of Japanese Art

Dmitry Tubis, a Ukrainian-born enthusiast of Japanese art and culture, stands out as a prominent Netsuke dealer with a unique story. His journey into the world of art began in childhood, surrounded by a family of antique collectors. This environment nurtured his appreciation for craftsmanship and artistry. However, it was a serendipitous encounter with an intricately carved wooden Netsuke at the age of 16 that ignited his profound passion for these miniature masterpieces.

Professionally a dentist, Dmitry’s meticulous attention to detail translated seamlessly into his appreciation for the delicate art of Netsuke. What started as a fascination soon evolved into an all-consuming passion, driving him to delve deep into the history, techniques, and narratives that each piece encapsulates. His collection, which began in 1991, became not only a personal treasure but a foundation for his future career.

Dmitry’s dedication to Netsuke transcended mere collecting. From 2009 to 2011, he served as the elected President of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Netsuke Society, and in 2011, he co-hosted the Beverly Hills Biannual Netsuke Convention, marking significant milestones in his career. Since officially entering the business in 2010, Dmitry has been instrumental in promoting and preserving the art of Netsuke.

Today, Dmitry Tubis is celebrated not just for his expertise but also for his role as a passionate advocate for Japanese art and culture. Through his work, he continues to inspire and educate others about the beauty and significance of Netsuke, ensuring these tiny, extraordinary works of art are appreciated by generations to come.
