Art Platform Tokyo presents the exhibition Irodori or Colors featuring three contemporary Nihonga artists (traditional Japanese painters) - Mitsuki Noguchi, known for portraying ethereal worlds with her original ‘crumpled paper technique’ using golden and silver leaf, Kotaro Isobe, who depicts various biotopes with his exquisite lines, and Yuuki Sori, who paints Japanese flowers in a stylish fashion using vivid contemporary colors. The three artists will celebrate the colors of the season, including cherry blossoms, each in their own artistic style. Nihonga uses materials derived from nature such as minerals, gold, silver and washi paper. Traditionally painted on screens and sliding doors, Nihonga has adorned the everyday lives of Japanese people. In today’s art world, where recognition mostly goes to artwork that depicts social problems, Nihonga adds color while portraying everyday Japanese life.
