September 21th (Sat) – October 6th (Sun), 2019


10:00am – 6:00pm (Open every day during the event)
MIZOE ART GALLERY TOKYO

The artworks by Masahito Katayama evoke feeling that not only visual information but also the sixth sense is stimulated beyond the five senses. The painted image can be recognized either as figurative or abstract. . In addition to such
works, there are also a series of flowers inspired by a painting on the ceiling of a temple. The exhibition space surrounded by the artworks makes me feel as if I came down on the heavenly paradise. From "botanical figuration" to "wind", "membrane", and "spiral", his style has transformed with the constant pursuit of new expression.
Please look forward to the new world he shows in this exhibition.

Kim Myung Sik is a world-renowned artist from South Korea. When he moved to New York alone in 2000, he started the series "East Side Story" inspired by people of various races and the houses resembling matchboxes seen from a car window. House is a place that people can repose most restfully. The seemingly unified houses and races show the joy, sorrow of the people living there, and his hope for the world in which diverse races live peacefully. "East Side", the place the sun rises, became the title of the series as a symbol of hope and pray. In this exhibition celebrating his 70th birthday, we exhibit new 40 works through which he ruminated the three periods. It will not betray your expectations.

The artworks by Masahito KATAYAMA evoke feeling that not only visual information but also the sixth sense is stimulated beyond the five senses. The painted image can be recognized either as figurative or abstract. Because of the artistic style, I could hardly imagine when he told: "I am now making a painting of Yamakasa". In addition to such works, there are also a series of flowers inspired by a painting on the ceiling of a temple. From "botanical figuration" to "wind", "membrane", and "spiral", his style has transformed with the constant pursuit of new expression. Please look forward to the new world he shows in this exhibition.

1932, the year he painted “Sudden rain (Woodstock, New York) ”, was the most productive time for Noda
as an artist. He was strongly influenced by Yasuo Kuniyoshi and George Grosz after he moved from
