Solo Exhibition by Ryoono
by hpgrp Gallery Tokyo
Location: hpgrp Gallery Tokyo
Artist(s): RYOONO
Date: 25 Jul - 17 Aug 2014

hpgrp GALLERY TOKYO presents a solo exhibition by RYOONO who is active in a wide range of techniques including graphic designs, textile designs, and murals.

RYOONO, with his making full use of organic and lively graphic works, has been putting many works out into the world in collaboration with commercial design of companies, such as apparels and restaurants. His dynamic wall painting, which thoroughly pursues graphic quality, has got a high evaluation inside and outside Japan. In the solo show at hpgrp GALLERY TOKYO in 2008, he created "swell" that is essential for life by depicting collages with pencils. Following the solo show in 2011, using images of plants and animals as a symbol for richness and vitality, RYOONO showcased digital prints which represented the idea of "an individual" and " the whole" with continuous graphic patterns. In this show, "plants", a symbol for abundance and beauty which he consistently pursues, are shown by his pencil drawings and digital collages that can be said as the strength of RYOONO. What he has been seeking for abundance and beauty is not superficial beauty or so called "praise of life", but things close to the idea of substantial "desire".
