Jose Maria Sicilia Exhibition
This event has ended.
Inspired by old painting techniques, Jose Maria Sicilia is a representative contemporary Spanish artist known for his large-scale series of paintings of flower and butterfly motifs on top of a base coat of beeswax. Sicilia was born in Madrid and now lives and works in Paris and Mallorca, and exhibits his work in Madrid, Paris, London and New York.
Continuing on from his large-scale solo exhibition held at the Nagasaki Prefecture Museum of Art in August, this show at Tokyo's Tamada Projects will be Sicilia's second solo exhibition in 9 years. In addition to the aforementioned beeswax series of paintings, a series of drawings on Japanese washi paper and other new works using Japanese materials will be on display.
50% of each entry ticket sold will be shared and donated to humanitarian medical NGO Médecins Du Monde and art-related Non-Profit Gadago, the organization running Tokyo Art Beat.
