Yoshimura Yoshio: Beyond Hyper-realism
This event has ended.
Over 62 works and 600 items are organized into three sections to provide a comprehensive view of Yoshio Yoshimura, a unique figure in the world of contemporary art. The scenes from everyday life depicted in monotone drawings and prints from his early period; the various flowers that he drew in colored pencil in his late period; and the self-portraits that he continued to draw throughout his life. Yoshimura’s amazing works took a tremendous amount of time to create. They go beyond realism and virtuosity to repeatedly question what it means to draw and depict. This exhibition is the first solo Yoshimura Yoshio exhibition to be held outside of the Chugoku region and Shikoku region.
from November 23, 2018 to January 20, 2019
