    DMOARTS is pleased to present "base on balls," a solo exhibition by Tokyo-based artist/illustrator Rooo Lou, organized by DMOARTS.
    Rooo Lou, whose digital illustrations have an impressive pop-like yet unique appearance, is popular among a wide range of people for her diverse activities, which include solo exhibitions in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and other cities, participation in a group show at Isetan Shinjuku, collaborations with fashion brands, and advertising work with major clients.
    This is Rooo Lou's first solo exhibition in a year and a half, in which she has shifted from her previous digital-based production style to a new approach to painting. This solo exhibition will be a challenge and a turning point for the artist herself.

    [Artist Statement]
    "If I were to use a baseball analogy, I feel that up until now I have been struggling to hit back the balls that flew at me before I could think about them. This time, I faced the work as if I were assessing each ball, whether to swing the bat or to forgo it, and put it into the form of a solo exhibition for the first time in about a year and a half."
