Countless artists sell their work at Sotheby’s each year. Here are three who shared their stories on camera.

E very year, Sotheby’s hosts selling exhibitions and curated sales featuring the work of some of the most exciting artists working today. This year, Michael Chow, Tomokazu Matsuyama and Noel W. Anderson invited us into their studios to share more about their processes and inspiration.


M, aka Michael Chow

Artist, restaurateur, architectural designer and actor M, aka Michael Chow, takes us inside his Los Angeles studio to explore the varied inspirations fueling his artistic process. M’s exhibition in Dubai, titled One Breath, featured two bodies of work: large-scale, mixed-media canvases that draw from European, American and Chinese traditions, as well as a series of works on paper that aim to summon the power of a singular moment.

Tomokazu Matsuyama

Renowned Japanese artist Tomokazu Matsuyama took us inside his Brooklyn studio as he prepared his Hong Kong exhibition, Harmless Charm. Through his use of sampling and his meticulously detailed painting style, Matsuyama explores hope through the familiar and unfamiliar, utilizing the imagery of pop culture, globalization and self-identity in the digital age.

Noel W. Anderson

On the occasion of his exhibition Electric Boogie, Help Us Find the Funk in Paris, Noel W. Anderson invited us to his Bronx studio. Anderson’s show took its title from the synthesis of two significant African American dance classics: Marci Griffiths’s Electric Boogie (1983) and Parliament-Funkadelic’s Flash Light (1977).
