This year, The Kobe Art Marché (KAM) welcomes the 10th anniversary. The galleries from across Japan participate in this art fair and exhibit their works in each room on the 13th floor of Kobe Meriken Park Oriental Hotel. Great locations of beautiful ocean view and Kobe’s street sights, it will be an easy-going event like that many guests join. We look forward to seeing you all at the Kobe Art Marché.
Mizoe Art Gallery/Room 1326, we are going to present three great artists Kenpei YUNDE, Satoru JOGASAKI and Takeshi WEI who are well received in past few years.
Firstly, Kenpei YUNDE believes that all the motifs are present on the "soil". He has been repeatedly putting and shaving oil on canvas to make matières over a year.We feel the deep beauty from the simple motif on the thick matières of his painting. In contrast, all his drawings express his respiration and realistic feelings with the improvisational sense of speed.
Next artist is Takeshi WEI. His works come from imaginary world. Painting melancholy figures and making playful objects with familiar waste materials such as drift woods. He produces a one-piece print by own method and a variety of works.
The last one is Satoru JOGASAKI.He makes humorous and emotional arts from casual moments. Innocent shaping Matières felt rough like sand but that is warm and close to our mind like a piece of road movie.
Please enjoy KOBE ART MARCHÉ 2018 to meet brilliant works.
Fee: 1,000 yen (Multi-Day Passport)
