This event has ended.
Yoshimasa Tsuchiya (b.1977) specialized in sculpture at Tokyo Art University and completed a doctor’s degree in the conservation and restoration of sculpture in 2007. Tsuchiya gives life to wood with traditional techniques for Buddhist statue restoration. Making the eyeballs from crystal or glass, he depicts unfocused eyes, which look different depending on their angles. Tsuchiya is also known for his animal sculptures, which can seem mystical or realistic with their smooth skin and unusual colors. His works have received favorable reviews at exhibitions and art fairs in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Europe. In this exhibition, Tsuchiya will be releasing approximately seven works with motifs a dinosaur, a bear, a giraffe, and a boy. A deer sculpture exhibited at Tokyo Art University in 2018 will also be included in the show.
