The Gallerist

Galerie Kommoss, founded by Dr. Fabian Alexander Kommoß, is a gateway to the fascinating world of Japanese art. Fabian's journey into the realm of Japanese art began with a deep curiosity about Zen Buddhism that took him from his hometown of Berlin to the heart of Japan and beyond. With a remarkable double doctoral degree in Art History and East Asian Art History, recognized for academic excellence by prestigious national programs—the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)—Fabian brings a unique blend of academic rigor and cultural immersion to the curation and promotion of Japanese art at Galerie Kommoss.


Having lived in Japan and experienced its cultural intricacies firsthand, Fabian is not only an academic but also a practitioner, having become a Buddhist lay monk and trained in traditional Japanese arts such as the tea ceremony and archery. His expertise is reflected not only in the carefully curated pieces showcased in our gallery but also in his commitment to educating and inspiring others about the often subtle nuances and significant meanings of Japanese artistic expression.


Beyond his work in the art world, Fabian is driven by a desire to make a positive impact on both the environment and society. From advocating for sustainable living practices to actively participating in conservation efforts, his dedication to creating a better world shines through in everything he does.


Join us at Galerie Kommoss as we embark on a journey to discover the timeless beauty and cultural richness of Japanese art, guided by Fabian's passion, expertise, and deep-rooted connection to the traditions of the East.


ギャラリー・コモスは、ファビアン・アレクサンダー・コモス博士によって設立され、日本美術の魅力的な世界への玄関口となっています。ファビアンの日本美術への旅は、ベルリンの故郷から日本の中心部へと至る禅仏教への深い好奇心から始まりました。美術史と東アジア美術史の優れた二重博士号を持ち、ドイツ国民の学術財団(Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes)とドイツ研究財団(Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft)の名高い国家プログラムで学問的優秀さが認められたファビアンは、学問的な厳密さと文化的な浸透のユニークな融合をギャラリー・コモスのキュレーションと日本美術の普及に持ち込んでいます。
