This event has ended.
Ushio Shinohara was born in Tokyo in 1932. He started his artistic career by participating in the Yomiuri Independent exhibition in 1955 while studying at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. In the 1960s, during a period of postwar social turmoil, he was among a group of artists that formed the “Neo-Dadaism Organizers” overturning conventions with strikingly provocative actions and works of art. Taking a leading role in the group, he enthusiastically produced works of Imitation Art including “Coca-Cola Plan” (1966), modeled directly after a work of the same title by Robert Rauschenberg, and “Drink More” (1964) borrowing from a piece by Jasper Johns. Shinohara is also known for the much-discussed works of his Oiran Series featuring faceless Japanese high-class courtesans painted vibrantly with a mixture of his distinctive view of Japanese tradition and expression inspired by American Pop Art.
