Miwa Komatsu is the most promising young artist in Asia today. This show exhibits almost one hundred paintings including The Forty-Ninth Day, which is the origin of the artist’s career, Guardian Lion Dog, the ink painting currently enjoying a stellar reputation, and the work shown on film “Flower and Sword”, yet-to-be-announced works in Japan as well as live performances in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, New York, and Dallas, in addition to more new works.
The artist is scheduled to do a live painting on September 2nd, 2018, and the live painting will be displayed till the end of the exhibition, so that the visitors can enjoy its realistic sense. In addition, photography that has captured the turning points of her life, such as the moment when her work was added to British Museum’s collection, the stage where she was awarded the Young Artist of the Year at the Tian Gala 2017 and so on, will be displayed at the exhibition. We cordially invite you to enjoy Miwa Komatsu’s first solo exhibition in a museum since her solo show at the Ueda City Museum of Art in 2014.
