One Painting, One Encounter: Exhibition of Kotaro Fukui's Japanese Paintings in Commemoration of His Collected Works Publication May. 9 (Thu.) to May. 15 (Wed.)
Kotaro Fukui was born in Tokyo in 1969, and he graduated from Tama Art University with an MFA in 1994. His well-known work A-1, which depicts a group of ostriches, was selected in 2003 by the Japanese government's Agency for Cultural Affairs as an outstanding work of art and purchased by them. Since then, Fukui has cultivated a unique artistic worldview based on a wide variety of different motifs. In commemoration of his twentieth anniversary as an artist, he has released his fourth collection of works, titled Ichiga Ichien: Nihonga-ka Fukui Kotaro no Kiseki ("One Painting, One Encounter: The Miracles and Achievements of Nihonga Painter Kotaro Fukui"; published by Kyuryudo Art Publishing). This exhibition features a wide assortment of Fukui's works together in one place, ranging from his well-known ostrich-themed paintings to his newly unveiled cherry-blossom-motif pieces. We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity and come to view the artist's works.
