This event has ended.

Kohei Sekigawa was awarded Grand Prize in the 14th “1_WALL” Graphics Exhibition competition (2016) for his “Figure” pencil drawings, and received high acclaim for the way he so realistically depicts things that exist in his imagination alone. Using only pencil, Sekigawa draws imaginary toys, artworks, and living creatures with meticulous attention to detail. So realistic is the texture of his depictions, one can easily imagine what they would feel like to touch. Sekigawa’s mode of self-expression exceeds drawing, extending to the realm of performance also. He believes, however, that when attempts are made to grasp something using words, there is an element that is inexpressible, and which becomes elusive. This is why Sekigawa chooses to express himself through drawings too - employing a method of transmission that does not rely on words. This exhibition will focus on new works by Sekigawa, drawn in the year or so since he received the Grand Prize.
