David Stanley Hewett Short History    

David Stanley Hewett’s work is fueled by a deep love and respect for Japanese values and tradition. His journey as an artist began in 1988 with a simple goal, to bring Japanese-inspired art to the world.

As a US native who has been living in Japan for more than three decades; his work carries an American sensibility coupled with a mastery of Japanese aesthetics. He specializes in large paintings for hotels and private residents. Many people say that Hewett’s avant-garde paintings and ceramic works imbue them with a sense of harmony and inner strength.

David Stanley Hewett is well known both nationally and internationally. He has shown in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, and New York. His works can be seen in permanent collections of the Imperial Hotel, Oakwood Premier Tokyo, Okura, Hotel Tokyo, and the Peninsula Tokyo Hotel as well as other public and private collections around the world.

In November 2017, Akie Abe (the wife of Japanese Prime minister Shinzo Abe) selected Hewett’s painting, Majime, as a gift for the First Lady of the United States, and in 2019, Majime was entered into the National Archives of the United States of America.

Why Invest in Hewett’s Art?   

A solid corporate wall art collection can inspire ideas that open new doors, strengthen the value of your corporate art collection and enhance your brand in ways you might not have realized. However, it takes an eye for talent to curate a truly unique and valuable collection. Corporate art buyers must consider the many factors involved in determining how well an artwork might appreciate over time as an investment.

Hewett has an impeccable reputation and is a rare talent. He is world-renowned for using gold leaf in his work, a notoriously difficult material to work with. Few in this world have put in the requisite decades of training to match his level of mastery with gold leaf artwork.

He is an accomplished artist having sold his work to some of the world’s leading corporate art collectors.

He has a 30-year track record of excellence with his work being featured both internationally and in Japan’s most respected galleries countless times.  

The Hewett Studio & Gallery team has extensive experience as international corporate art consultants for some of the world’s most prestigious clientele.

Once your artwork is ready, the Hewett Studio & Gallery team will deliver and install your commissioned painting locally (in Japan) or arrange for international shipping through one of our trusted couriers. 

The Hewett Commitment  

The Hewett Studio & Gallery is dedicated to the legacy of Japanese culture. We are committed to sourcing the highest quality materials to produce rare artwork that stays true to the artistry and traditions of Japan.

Hewett’s signature material is gold, specifically gold leaf for his paintings. The gold leaf used in Hewett’s paintings is 98.6% gold. This incredibly soft, thin material is extremely difficult to work with but it produces the best quality artwork, paintings that will endure the passage of time.

The team at Hewett Studio & Gallery has more than 30 years of experience working closely with designers and architects from all over the world to bring life and energy into shared spaces. It’s typical for our team to collaborate with the architect and designer from the beginning of the design-inception phase to the completion of the project.

Why Hewett’s Artwork is a Perfect Addition to Any Corporate Art Collection

Andy Warhol famously said that “…making money is art, and working is art…” While this statement rings true, the opposite is also true at the present moment. Art is good business, and investment in rare corporate artwork can add diversity, depth, and value to your collection.


Today, the global art market value is estimated at 50 billion US dollars. The good news is that these days, art investments are no longer exclusive to eccentric billionaires and fine art aficionados. 


It’s easier than ever to diversify your portfolio with corporate wall art. As a result, the art market is a hotbed of activity for up-and-coming collectors. 

One reason for this is because the art world has a different set of rules than the stock market. Analysts agree that an investment in art is a good way to mitigate risk since the art market has a low correlation to the stock market.


Aside from risk management, a good ROI is another reason to invest in art. Rarity is valuable and rare art has a better chance of appreciating over time. No matter how much your other assets fluctuate, a Monet will still be a Monet no matter what.

Likewise, Hewett’s work is exceedingly rare as an American artist specializing in traditional Japanese technique with the exceptionally challenging gold-leaf media in particular, you won’t find any other piece in the world akin to his work nor could it be easily recreated.

Art Creates a Culture of Creativity

Art is also an investment in the people of your organization. As Millennials and Gen Z dominate the workforce, so do their values. Experts believe companies who nurture creativity are better equipped to come up with innovative solutions, which can lead to positive compounding results for the business.

Corporate office artwork can dramatically affect the emotional quality of a space. In the past few decades, more and more corporate art collections have been curated for employees. Many companies feature art in their office space, which can inspire creativity and increase productivity, especially among creative and digital professionals.  

Hewett’s paintings are designed to imbue a harmonious state of being and a sense of inner strength. Many of his clients put their paintings in the entryway or foyer to give the space an immediate sense of power and elegance.

Corporate Art Boosts Your Brand

Corporate art buyers have many different goals for their collections and branding is high-priority on that list. Want to communicate the value of your brand? Actions speak louder than words and effective branding makes it much easier to thrive. 

An impressive collection of corporate office artwork followed by a strong conference room wall art statement piece can send a powerful message about the success of your organization. A statement that can boost your level of sophistication, influence your partners and create a buzz around your brand.

It’s Good for Business

Corporate art collections can be great for public relations. Networking is a numbers game and the art world is full of opportunities to meet well-connected individuals. You never know who you might meet. But no matter who you connect with, art is a great way to spark that connection.
