Jiang Yi is an artist of exceptional talent who, after coming to Japan and earning a doctorate in statistical physics called "osmosis" and applying the results to his artistic activities, conducted repeated research in the Koji Kinutani Laboratory at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, and created a new style of painting.
Yi’s achievements were highly acclaimed, and in 1992 he was selected for the "Journey of Asian Contemporary Art" exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, Saitama, and is active internationally in the United States, Europe, China, and Japan as a representative artist of Asian contemporary art. Yi has also analyzed the mechanism of oriental art with modern mathematics through his research on "fractals" and authored "Chinese Painting Dimensions," the first ever book to lay a mathematical foundation for oriental art.


As Yi said, "If you pursue physics to the extreme, you will reach a high level of spirituality," the works in this exhibition, in which he entrusted his own thoughts to a "leopard," represent a kind of counterattack against contemporary society and contemporary art. Traveling freely in a space where reality and virtuality intersect, he attempts to look at the essence of human nature through the eyes of a " leopard," asking what civilization is and what wildness is. In this solo exhibition, approximately 20 new works with the leopard as the main motif are exhibited, interweaving the idea of "Xiao Yao You" by Zhuangzi.
