"I think art is the way to make everyone be happy" - Nantoka

Nantoka is a Japanese-born contemporary artist, with the primary subject of his work being a Kawaii Girl, through digital illustrations, sketches and on canvas. His pieces are commonly characterised by the monochromatic figure, who is often set against vibrant pop-colour backgrounds, instantly drawing you in. Based in Fukuoka, Nantoka has been drawing since 2017 and has been drawing a specific girl, the “Frustration Girl,” since 2020. With a refined yet unassuming style, Nantoka explores emotion and identity in his work.

He has featured in exhibitions at YOD Editions in Osaka, Art Fair Tokyo, and SPACE BANKSIA in Tokyo.

Popcorn and cascade bidding:

If a bid is placed during the last 2 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional 2 minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.

Cascade bidding ensures auction lots close at staggering times, one after another. For example, the first lot of an auction might close at 12:01pm, the second lot would close at 12:02pm, then the third lot at 12:03pm, etc.
