Fumihiro "Charlie Brown" Hayashi of The Last Gallery,
Javier Peres of Peres Projects and
Emily Sundblad of Reena Spaulings -- three dealers from Tokyo, Los
Angeles and New York, respectively -- do a lot more than provide gallery space.
They act as cheerleaders, mentors and drinking buddies to the artists they
represent. Committed to keeping business authentic even during troubled times
and maintaining a vision large enough to embrace the most subversive acts and
radical ideas, they are THE REAL DEAL.
