Yoshitaka Amano “Tokyo Sync”
This event has ended.
Freedom from contracts and limitations deepens Amano’s natural creativity. He produces entirely new worlds using various materials and sensory stimuli received from his wanderings. His many works of automotive paint on aluminum panels produced in recent years indicate the intimate relationship between our era and the mythological universe that Amano is creating. The world is dissolved and bound together in the artist’s original creativity in an ongoing syncretic operation, synchronizing the artworks he produces with the era in which we live. In the series “Deva Loka” (the place where the gods are), which comprises the core of Amano’s body of work, monsters and gods overcrowding the pictorial plane blend together with mysterious machines in a world of abundance.
This show of new works, including pieces from the Deva Loka series and those featuring familiar characters from early in Amano’s career, invites viewers to discover a Tokyo-born and ever-changing new mythology headed toward the future.
