Ourselves in Today's World
by Megumi Ogita Gallery
Location: Showcase Megumi Ogita Gallery
Artist(s): Kengo NAKAMURA
Date: 14 Jan - 1 Feb 2014

Kengo Nakamura was graduated MA Japanese Painting Course, Tama Art University in 1995. Kengo applies our familiar subjects such as floor plans of studio flats, “Re:” as mobile phone texts’ titles, speech balloons of comic books into his Japanese painting based works.

In spite of the figurative motifs and pop cultural expressions, his works are highly conceptual that represent groups of people living in the age of the complex culture. The paintings also offer us the genuine aesthetics that are skillfully painted in a classic way.

The features of the exhibition this time is new pieces of “Emoticon”. The works describe the newness and flux of our communication style today. Kengo will release 3 large paintings(100 x 80.3cm) and small paintings(33.3 x 24.2cm / 27.3 x 22cm).
