This event has ended.

Mishima was born in Osaka in 1978, and after graduating from graphic design school took part in the Enlightenment exhibition led by Hiro Sugiyama. Since 2009, he has been highly active beyond his own art practice, including art direction for the fashion brand Fugahum, the collaborative performance unit Mecabioth with Koji Nakamura, performances for Tomoyasu Hotei’s London concerts, and VJ-ing for notable musicians Towa Tei and Shinichi Osawa. As a contemporary artist, he has shown solo exhibitions at the likes of Germany’s influential gallery Nagel Draxler in Berlin, and his reputation continues to build each year.
The upcoming solo exhibition, held three years since his last showing at this gallery, is inspired by the concept of the “knothole” featuring an installation of two- and three- dimensional pieces composed together with microscopes, following the notion of “a broad perspective which can be reached through the minute examination of something in exhaustive detail.”
