Futo Akiyoshi "I have no pick-up lines"
This event has ended.
Since his debut in 2000, Futo Akiyoshi (b. 1977) has been making work that explores a classic theme: what is the nature of painting?
Akiyoshi's work pays tribute to traditional frameworks of Western oil painting while also incorporating distinctively Japanese elements. He portrays and reveals classical painting structures through the use of light and three-dimensionality, using minimal linework and a gold palette to create reinterpretations of Western and Minimal painting.
In addition to 7 gold paintings from his "Room" series, polaroid photos and 3 new paintings are on display.
