This event has ended.
After studying at the Women’s Art College and Waseda University Shidu Shimada (b. 1923) went to study in Paris in 1958 and would spend the next two decades there. During her time in France she developed a style of misted oil colors with their own sense of space and transparency, later coming to work with water colors and printmaking on her return to Japan. Teruo Isomi(1941-) studied painting and print making at Tokyo University of the Arts and began to produce large scale print works from multiple plates of cedar, creating a sense of rhythm across the support through the array of gaps between each plate.
