This event has ended.
The exhibition marks the artist’s seventh solo presentation with Tomio Koyama Gallery since his previous showing five years ago, and features a selection of new paintings. Inspired by his original stories and creative contemplations, Atsushi Fukui’s paintings depict utopian worlds that permeate with an air of peace and tranquility. From mushrooms and trees, to a young girl in the forest, animals, fragments of contemporary everyday spaces, scenes of ancient times, and the vast expanse of the universe –various elements resonate with another to create distant imagery and a sense of scale that transcends time and space, almost reminiscent of epic narratives dating back to the times of mythology.
