Kanako Ohya Exhibition
This event has ended.
Ohya is an artist who captures the "beauty of imperfection" and the "turbulent feelings of youth" using vivid but simple imagery. In the works of Ohya, viewers are confronted with objects in daily life such as utensils used in the kitchen or the bathroom, as well as young girls who only present ambiguous feelings. These carefully laid out images painted in striking air brushed colors over a white background, create a space that is unsettling, emphasizing the anxieties of the fleeting youth of the expressionless girls.
Ohya has been selected for the 28th Outstanding Rising Artists Exhibition, presented by Sompo Japan Fine Art Foundation, and was awarded the first prize at the Gunma Seinen Biennale.
