Hidetoshi Yamada "Breath"
This event has ended.
Hidetoshi Yamada started working as an artist for the Ozone Community in 1991 and following a series of solo exhibitions with them, in 1999 he moved to England. There, he developed his creative activities, mainly in London's East End, holding several well-received solo exhibitions of his work.
This exhibition "Breath" is Yamada's first exhibition of new work since his return to Japan, for which he has chosen "scenes of Tokyo" as his theme. Through his sketches, he brings viewers from Tokyo a new perspective on their hometown. As the title suggests, the work depicts everyday scenes and objects, the things which make up our daily lives. However, his work depicts these things in an affectionate and gentle manner. He transfers his drawings onto transparent film and colours them in from the reverse side: a technique he devised when he was in London so as to give emphasis to the liveliness of the line.
For this exhibition, while making a 1200mm wide collage of transparent film, he has produced approximately 30 large-scale works.
