This event has ended.

The brilliant sky, powerful land and magnificent architecture - Ken Yabuno (b.1943) creates paintings of cityscapes from his memory. Having studied in Spain and largely influenced by European architecture, he incorporates these elements into his paintings to create his own world.

Yabuno has received critical acclaim at a variety of large exhibitions such as Niki-Ten, and he has also taught at Musashino Art University and Waseda University. He often walks around cities and makes sketches of the places he visits. This is a retrospective exhibition featuring about 50 paintings and drawings.

Cities in the dust
Ken Yabuno re-imagines the past of Spain
By C.B. Liddell
Special to The Japan Times

"In old buildings you can see the daily life of people from generation to generation," Yabuno explains. "After about 50 or 60 years, buildings reflect the character of the people. It's similar to the lifetime of people."
