  • Exhibition overview

Most of the drawings that Mitsushima draws are not architectures that he designed.
For Mr. Mitsushima, what is the connection between drawing and designing architecture? Mr. Mitsushima made the following comments for this exhibition.

I preside over the architectural design office and continue to draw.

The act of creating an architecture (music) together with craftsmen with the architect as the conductor is a gift of collective creation, whereas the act of drawing is a composer who faces staves alone lonely That's it.

I created a “map” with sketches that I drew around the world, and I draw drawings with the motif of “fantasy cityscape” that I might have found as an act to discover new myself. The source of creation is always "poetic" (poetry).

In this exhibition, we will exhibit new works drawn by such “fantasy city scenery” and challenge to draw drawings with the theme of GINZA while staying in the exhibition space.
In other words, by making the center of a big city a limited-time atelier, you can interact with customers and try to draw an expressive urban landscape that can be seen from a different place, so you can enjoy the beauty of a diverse world. Want to find.

Ginza Ashiya Shoten proposes a “life with art” by connecting art, Japanese culture and life through books. I hope that this exhibition will be an opportunity for many people to experience the world of Mitsushima.
