Whitestone Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of Yoichiro Kawaguchi, who initiated the concept of “Science is Art” and became its world authority.
Yoichiro Kawaguchi was invited to the Venice Biennale in 1995 together with Kengo Kuma, Jae-eun Choi, Hiroshi Senju, and Katsuhiko Hibino. Kawaguchi’s exhibited work which was years ahead of a futuristic art’s image was highly acclaimed. Afterwards, he spent 20 years as professor at the graduate school of the University of Tokyo. In 2018, he was not only awarded Prix D’Honneur at Prix Bains Numériques in France, but also inducted into the Hall of Siggraph Academy, the highest ranked institution in the field of CG. By using computers, he devoted himself in the study inquiring into the process of the life evolution, created “growth” (self-organized) model from the life forms of five hundred million years ago, and succeeded in the modelling of the three-dimensional life forms of five hundred million years hereafter.
Speaking of Leonardo Da Vinci, he was scientist at the same time exquisite artist. Yoichiro Kawaguchi contributed to the appearance of unexplored frontier in the history of art, where science stands face to face with art stimulating each other.
It would be our great pleasure if many peoples come visit to our gallery and enjoy the one billion years’ time-space voyage by Yoichiro Kawaguchi.
