This event has ended.

This will be Tsukuda's debut exhibition; through more than a year of preparation, he produced 4 oil paintings, 5 masks and about 10 prints.

Hiroki Tsukuda is a young artist currently living in Tokyo, who was born in Kagawa in 1978, and graduated from the Department of Imaging Arts and Sciences of Musashino Art University. A number of his works have been presented mainly in commercial creative fields such as in fashion and record jacket design. These works attract a lot of attention, mainly among the younger generation, which is conscious of Robot animations, SF movies and SF comics that fueled a craze in the 1970s and 1980s.

The title of the exhibition “Visionary Sensibility” is a quote from Tsukuda's revered Surrealist, Max Ernst. Tsukuda observes Descartes' philosophy of “I think therefore I am,” casting doubt on all visible worlds, as the Surrealists did in the past.

Tsukuda comments on his works: “I like what the great artists did in the past and I always question human visual perception. Humanity's power to embrace the illusion, or the power that makes humans embrace illusion does not necessarily remain in the world of vision. I leave the reasons of my own aesthetics to my vision and other related senses.”

In conjunction with the exhibition, there will be a talk show and several events.

Also, his solo exhibition titled “Doctrine” will be held simultaneously at the Diesel Denim Gallery in Aoyama, a new concept shop of Italian apparel brand Diesel, which will include a large scale installation work and projected images.
