This event has ended.
In addition to his work as a sculptor, Kaimon Yoshimizu is a a buddhist monk and creator of Buddhist statues.
He received his Ph.D in preservation of cultural heritage from Tokyo University of the Arts. After graduating, his practice evolved dramatically and he received attention from many corners as a rising young talent. Yoshimizu’s artworks all possess a quiet, purified air. However, they are not all stillness and feature subtle movement that might be missed without careful observation.
From the sounds of small creatures walking on the sand to lotus flowers opening in bloom, his pieces focus the heart on the smallest elements of existence. We hope you will observe them patiently and let their soft sounds reach your ears as well.
