In addition to new exhibitions, new prints and original T-shirts are on sale.
Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore, which proposes "a life with art", is holding a solo exhibition "Ngantanpa" by artist Atsushi Isomura from August 25th to September 6th at the Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore central atrium event. It will be held at Space GINZA ATRIUM.
This is the first solo exhibition at the Ginza Tsutaya bookstore in Isomura Dan for the first time in a year, and is the first solo exhibition after Isomura's stay in New York. It will be held at the same time. In this exhibition titled "Ngantanpa", we will display new works as well as new prints and original T-shirts.
Ken Isomura is an artist who uses various materials and techniques, from oil paintings to acrylic paintings, cement sculptures, pottery, and video works.After graduating from Tokyo University of the Arts, he joined the Genlong Chaos * Lounge New Art School and finished. He won the gold medal for his commentary, succeeded in his solo exhibitions in Tokyo and London since 2017, and since 2019 has stayed in New York as ACC Granty, steadily solidifying his position as an artist.
This year, he is expected to play an increasingly active role, such as presiding over the artist run space "UGO".
His work world, which is based on careful research on indigenous beliefs and religious art, seems chaotic at first glance, but religion, especially Buddhism's original view of life and death, and modern social creases such as gender and globalization are unique. It is connected by a different sensitivity and vividly captures the customary dynamism of religious art.
