This event has ended.
Akiko Endo started painting at a young age. A graduate of Musashino Art University Junior College of Art and Design, she has received prestigious art prizes such as the Yasui Award, the Minister of Education Award for Fine Arts, and the Medal of Honor with Purple Ribbon. She continues to receive attention and acclaim. Her oeuvre can be roughly divided into the “paradise” and “townscape” themed-works of her early years and the large paintings of recent years, but in between these periods she produced a series of enormous works on 1000 and 1500-sized canvases. Focusing on 500-sized works, this exhibition displays Akiko Endo paintings from the Sagamihara City collection, a giant new work created for this occasion, and 30 representative pieces from her early period through the present.
