Chika Tanikawa Solo Exhibition “Hear the Voice of the Distant Stars”
2014. 11. 05 Wed. - 2014. 11. 18 Tue.
DMOARTS is pleased to announce Chika Tanigawa's solo exhibition "Listening to the Distant Stars". Chika Tanigawa is an artist who has been active in a wide range of fields, mainly in the Kansai region, exhibiting in Tokyo, participating in art fairs overseas, and even bookbinding. Her works depict a woman with a somewhat melancholy expression in a fantasy world. At first glance, her works are composed of pop and bright colors, but as you view them, you get the impression that they depict matte and profound mental landscapes. This is her first solo exhibition in Osaka in about two years. In addition to new paintings and drawings, a series of My First Art using giclee printing, a high-resolution fine art printing method, will be exhibited and sold. Also available for purchase are iPhone cases, postcard sets, tote bags, and art books. We hope you will take this opportunity to visit the exhibition. Opening reception: Saturday, November 8, 18:00- The artist will be in the gallery, so everyone is welcome to attend.
