This event has ended.
This fall, Ginza Graphic Gallery (ggg) will showcase the multi-faceted work of Ryoichi Enomoto, a creative director, producer, and designer with a sharp eye for the signs of the times, whose creative journey has criss-crossed the seas of various cultural genres including art, design, drama, magazine editing, and exhibition planning. Enomoto’s world is jam-packed with gems, including a wide array of work that had enormous influence on the Japanese cultural scene in the 1970s and 80s, such as dynamic calligraphy and large paintings inspired by Tatsuhiko Shibusawa’s swan song, The Travels of Prince Takaoka, Bikkuri House, a legendary sub-culture magazine that pioneered the open participation approach, and Nihon Guraffiku-ten, an exhibition of graphic art that aimed to shatter established ideas and discover new creative talent. Enomoto’s graphic design activities include work with Shuji Terayama and the Tenjo Sajiki theater troupe and dance posters for Saburo Teshigawara. Not to be forgotten is “Manual skills for brain work: conceptual notes by Ryoichi Enomoto”, which contains a vast volume of notes providing a glimpse into Enomoto’s mind. We ask you to publicize the exhibition in the hope that it will generate the winds of stimulus to fill the sails of a younger generation of artists just voyaging forth on the seas of creativity.
