This event has ended.
Born in 1989, Anju Michele currently lives and works between Kyoto and Venice. The artist captures scenes in front of him and converts this information into the act of painting. His discernment in terms of grasping various forms and his speed, more sophisticated than ever, has become the foundation of his art practice.
Imaginarium, the title of his first solo exhibition at ShugoArts, is a word created by Anju, meshing “imagination” and “-arium,” which represents a place in Latin. Anju Michele’s paintings, in which his imagination gives rise to his creation, implies the fact that we humans are innately free.
In “circle,” which was just completed this March, Anju painted circles, so softly that they look like they are floating, on a piece of aluminum paper. Those circles seem to be wide-open mouths, which could be entrances to various spatio-temporal worlds, or planets observing our world from different dimensions; they are beautiful as they exist there. In this exhibition, the artist presents close to thirty-three new artworks all at once.
