This event has ended.
In May and June, ginza graphic gallery (ggg) will host “Beginnings,” an exhibition of the works of Tsuguya Inoue. Inoue has been widely hailed for his sharp sensibilities and the unfettered freedom he displays in creating stunningly new designs integrating photography and typography, magical designs in which photos come to life. Starting from the 1980s, through the 1990s, and straight through to the present, Inoue has never strayed from his glowing path of avant-garde creativity. Nearly a decade has passed since ggg hosted Inoue’s very first solo show. Since then, working in the realms of both advertising and publishing, he has created a steadily growing body of works born from his insatiable curiosity and sense of artistic adventure, works that have continued to evolve toward greater and greater purity. The core of Inoue’s upcoming exhibition at ggg will be his various new poster series. Among them, “The Burning Heaven” employs photographs of the sun, moon, light, water, oil, plants and such to create fictitious universes. Posters in his “Happy Time” series are imbued with humor and playfulness against a backdrop filled with tension. All posters on display will be Inoue’s most prominent works self-selected from among his numerous masterpieces. Also on show will be the vast body of his posters and book designs created in recent years, in ever-expanding variety, in collaboration with the fashion world. Inoue’s works evoke an overwhelming and truly breathtaking aura. From that aura, visitors will surely enjoy discovering all-new sensations: the new beginnings of Tsuguya Inoue’s newest journey of creativity.
