GO OGAWA

Utilizing the refraction of light occurred by “prism”, Go Ogawa wraps the space with light corpuscles scattered in various hues. While this unconventional visual experience dazzles the viewers, it brings simultaneously back their memory of light evoking something “déjà vu” sensation-the art of Go Ogawa is blessed not only with the radical power which attacks the viewer’s sense of formation, but also with the orthodoxy of art descended from impressionism to minimalism. The artist has been challenging the limit of “the disturbance and the expansion of sight” with his selected use of mediums and exquisite techniques. In recent years, he has been also developing jewellery production in collaboration with Tsutaya Books China (treated in four branches in Shanghai, Xian, and Hangzhou), and the name “GoOGAWA” has already obtained a trademark registration in mainland China.

Born in 1981 in Kanagawa Prefecture, Go Ogawa graduated from Tokyo University of the Arts (received the Governor of Tokyo Award in the graduate exhibition) in 2007, and continuously completed his master’s study in 2009. He was accepted for the 10th and 13th Mitsubishi Cooperation ART GATE Program (MCAGP). Since 2011 he has been a member of the artist collective “C-DEPOT”. In 2013, he was accepted for the 8th Tagboat Award.
