While thinking about your travel destination, remember the comfortable atmosphere you felt there. The colorful world is full of everyday life. I expressed the “Irodori” of such days. We hope you enjoy it. (Mr. Suito Nakatsuka)

The Ginza Mitsukoshi Main Building 7th floor gallery will hold Suito Nakatsuka's exhibition "Irodori" from March 8, 2023 (Wednesday) to March 13, 2023 (Monday). Suito Nakatsuka creates pictorial works based on letters and continues to challenge new possibilities of expression. He has received high acclaim both at home and abroad, with his installation work presented in Paris winning both the Gold Prize and the Gold Jury Prize. In this exhibition, which will be held for the second time at Ginza Mitsukoshi, we will display and sell the theme of "Irodori" that overflows in everyday life. We hope that you will take this opportunity to view the powerful yet lighthearted works of Suito Nakatsuka, including the new works unveiled at this solo exhibition.
