  • Wenguang Chen  (+)

    Biography : Following early training at the Guangzhou University in China as an ink painter, Chen relocated to Japan in 1985 and spent the next fourteen years mastering Nihonga, which was considered at the time to be a uniquely Japanese technique and aesthetic. Under the guidance of Matazo Kayama at the Tokyo University of Fine Art, Chen was able to gain a deeper understanding of advanced techniques, allowing him to develop his own style within this ancient tradition of painting. Chen provides a significant link between Chinese and Japanese art, by tracing Nihonga back to its Chinese origins. He now teaches NIhonga to Chinese students in China. Chen is considered by the Japanese to be a major practitioner of Nihonga, a remarkable achievement given his Chinese lineage. Though the strict principles of the form are respected by Chen, they do not control the content of his compositions. Chen’s paintings not only reflect a thousand years of Asian art, but they also consider the postmodern environment. Chen’s contribution to Nihonga has been noted by eminent scholars including Steven Owyoung, the former Curator of Asian Art at the St. Louis Art Museum. Additionally Chen has received praise from his former teacher, Matazo Kayama, one of the most important 20th Century Japanese artists.

    Detailed Description : Cristina De Middel (Spain, 1975) is a photographer based in London that has been working for different newspapers in Spain and with NGO's such as Doctors Without Borders or the Spanish Red Cross for more than 8 years. She combines her strictly documentary assignments with more personal projects that have been awarded and exhibited in several occasions (incuding PhotoFolio Arles 2012, Deutsche Börse Prize and the Infinty Award from the ICP in New York). This B-side of Cristina's work deliberately asks the audience to question the language and the veracity of photography as a document, and plays with reconstructions or archetypes that blur the border between reality and fiction.

  • Per Fronth  (+)

    Biography : Per Fronth is an internationally established Norwegian artist, represented by galleries and museums worldwide. His career with the Dillon Gallery began in 1998 with his first solo exhibition Xingu Chronicles, which quickly established him as a powerful force in contemporary photography.

    Detailed Description : Since winning the UBS Art Award from London’s White Chapel Gallery in 2000, Masatake Kouzaki’s work has been widely exhibited internationally. In the last decade, he has shown at the Sato Museum, the Fukushima Museum, the Koriyama Museum, and the Futyu Museum in his native Japan. Intensively trained in the traditional Nihonga technique of Japanese painting at Tokyo National University, where he gained his doctorate in 2005, Kouzaki uses a unique combination of traditional materials (ground mineral pigments, gold and silver leaf on rice paper) with modern oil and acrylic paints. The artist has also worked extensively with relief application in the form of foil molds, innovating this centuries old technique. Kouzaki has received numerous awards and extensive critical recognition for his creative approach to Nihonga. Kouzaki’s paintings explore a unique vision of diverse characters, by combining animals and plants, and real and mythical creatures into new creations. Kouzaki sees his imaginative conceptions as intimately tied to advances in science and industry. By depicting humans as transformed, hybrid characters, he makes us reflect on humanities self-identification.

  • Steven MacIver  (+)

    Biography : Steven Maciver was born in the Orkney Islands and completed his BA in Fine Arts at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen and his MFA at the Slade School of Art. Following his graduation in 2004, MacIver was honored with the Sainsbury Scholarship in Painting and Sculpture at the British School at Rome. His fundamental preoccupation with the creation of various types of space was deepened by his time in Rome and can be seen in his renderings of stadiums and coliseums. He uses these abstracted architectural studies to deeply explore how space is used and contained. For MacIver, the fundamental aspect of art is the ability to draw a line well and this is clearly demonstrated in his explorations with internal and external space. He calls his artistic method a type of “excavation” because he uses a scalpel to remove paint in a reductive method from the canvas. The result is a structured surface that is both glossy and flat: a type of interplay between drawing and painting. His various compositions, made of a multitude of intersecting lines, create both a real and imagined space. Amongst the many awards and grants this gifted young artist has already received, the Rome Prize for study awarded to him by the Slade School placed him as one of the leading young artists from Britain. He currently lives and works outside Oxford.

  • Keizaburo Okamura  (+)

    Biography : Keizaburo Okamura has in recent years become the standard-bearer for the new generation of contemporary Nihonga artists, receiving a number of significant museum exhibitions in Japan for his monumental installations. Okamura’s work is executed on cedar panels, which are burned, shaved and planed then painted with glue and dosa, as well as ochre, sand, glass, mineral pigments and ground oyster shell. Much of his image-making results from incision into this preparation and into the panel surface itself. His work explores innovative techniques previously unthinkable in the field of Nihonga. Okamura’s subjects range from Ryu, Hakutaku and Karura (Japanese mythological creatures) to birds, rabbits and elephants. However, even when drawing the more common animals, his approach tends toward the totemic and animistic. Although his works are devoid of the human figure, Okamura finds inspiration in the intrinsic connection of humanity and nature. and devotes his efforts to creating works that evoke vernacular traditions and customs. Thus, there is timelessness to his work— an impression that suggests both primitive art and spirituality.

    Detailed Description : My work is based on three main subjects: life, death, and eternity. These three subjects form a foundation for all my work. Each artwork has a specific unique story. These stories are based on Greek, Roman, Egyptian mythologies, religious stories, and Eastern philosophy. However, I do not limit my thoughts to a particular philosophy. My work depicts stories of human being in current time, nation and generation. My work can project two different points of view. They become realistic when seen through a traditional point of view. Yet it also looks enlightened when seen through a contemporary point of view. I try to tell contemporary issues with the craftsmanship of great masters by borderings the line of two very different practice of painting..

    Detailed Description : Born in Virginia, Brian Rose moved to New York City in 1977 to attend Cooper Union. He studied with photographers Joel Meyerowitz and Larry Fink, the painter Jake Berthot, conceptual artist Hans Haacke, and art historian Dore Ashton. 

In 1980, he and fellow Cooper graduate Edward Fausty photographed the Lower East Side of Manhattan, supported by a New York State CAPS grant, and later participated in a photographic survey of the Financial District, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. 
In 1985 Rose began photographing the Iron Curtain and the Berlin Wall. That project has continued to the present, chronicling the fall of the Wall and the rebuilding of Berlin. His book The Lost Border, The Landscape of the Iron Curtain was published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2004.

 From 1993 to 2007 Rose lived in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. In 1998 he photographed the Mercatorplein neighborhood with its immigrant population and Amsterdam School architecture. That work, supported by the Netherlands Architecture Fund, was published as Mercatorplein, Image of a World in Amsterdam.

 After returning to New York, Rose began re-photographing the Lower East Side and documenting the rebuilding of the World Trade Center. Rose's images have been collected by the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He lives in New York with his wife, urban planner Renée Schoonbeek, and his son Brendan.

  • Chie Shimizu  (+)

    Biography : To pursue my thoughts in art, it was very natural to draw upon cultural aspects of Japan, where I grew up. When I started to express my feelings through art, I came to confront the question: What am I? My solution at the time was to go see my great uncle, who was a sculptor and practiced Zen throughout his life. I never got an answer to my question, but my curiosity towards existence and life grew quickly, and it became my lifetime journey to look for clues through art form.

    Detailed Description : In order to have perspective in my thoughts and emphasize my ideas, I often use Japanese mythology, old lessons and philosophical literature, including traditional and modern performances and ceremonial events. It is fascinating to know that people living hundreds years ago have felt the same ways about life that we still feel in the present. I am confident that these themes and dialogues are universal and share common feelings. The painting technique I use on my sculptures is Japanese traditional painting. Using a rabbit skin glue mixed with a seashell powder called “Gofun” creates a shell-like surface distinct from other paint finishes. Powdered pigments of many layers are added after the base coat of Gofun, along with gold, platinum, white gold and silver leaf. Creating a tranquil moment amid the complexities of human life is the embodiment of my admiration towards Zen thought. Suggesting story in objects with minimized expression through clearing my thought and minds is a way of approaching the clue.

  • Humans Since 1982  (+)

    Biography : Both born in 1982, Per Emanuelsson (Sweden) and Bastian Bischoff (Germany) founded their studio in 2009/2010 during their Master graduation at HDK Gothenburg. Before they met at HDK, Per completed a Master of Science at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and Bastian studied Communication Design at HTWG in Konstanz, Germany. Since 2010 they are based in Stockholm. Humans since 1982 are interested in interest itself. Their claim is to arouse fundamental curiosity by creating material hints of how the world might. Their debut object, the “Surveillance Light”, was initially shown at Stockholm Furniture Fair in 2008. It was well received not only in the design and art press but also in political blogs and magazines. The presence in media brought Humans since 1982 together with Brussels based gallery Victor Hunt. During their graduation thesis in 2009 they developed their projects, “Celebrating the cross” and “The clock clock”. Whilst “Celebrating the cross” was perceived ambiguously and polarized journalists and reader on religious and political blogs, “The Clock Clock” evoke unanimous positive reaction. For their thesis, Humans since 1982 received a price for the best graduation work at HDK and were received by Wallpapers graduation Directory. With “Celebrating the cross” they were nominated by Li Edelkoort for Designhuis’ “European Talent”. In 2010 “The Clock Clock” found its way into the Saatchi Gallery London where Per & Bastian’s cooperation with auction house and gallery Phillips de Pury began. In the same year Humans since 1982 developed commission work for institutions and corporation such as “The Sacred World Foundation” in New Delhi and “The purple house” in Seoul. In 2011 the studio took part at group shows and conferences at Villa Empainat (Boghossian Foundation), Brussels, EcoDesign Habitare, Helsinki, Triennale Design Museum, Mi

  • Ultra Violet

    Biography : Writer, actress, singer and artist Ultra Violet, born Isabelle Collin Dufresne in Grenoble, France on September 6, 1935 rebelled against her aristocratic upbringing, leading her parents to have her exorcised by a Catholic priest in 1948. She moved to New York City in 1951; where she met Salvador Dali and became his muse and pupil. During the cultural revolution of the 1960s, she was closely associated with John Graham, John Chamberlain, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Joseph Stella, and other artists of the New York School. In 1963, Dali introduced Dufresne to Andy Warhol. She became known as Ultra Violet, a Pop icon, collaborating with others in the creation of the legendary silver Factory as one of its "superstars." Ultra appeared in several movies including John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy, Milos Forman's Taking Off, Norman Mailer's Maidstone, and Woody Allen's Night Train and Paul Mazursky films. Acted as queen Natolia from Saturn in "Conquest of the Universe" with the famed "Theater of the Ridiculous," directed by John Vaccaro. She wrote music and recorded with Capital Records. Her best seller memoir, Famous For Fifteen Minutes: My Years With Andy Warhol, was published in 1988 and has been issued in seventeen different versions. Her book obtained a full-page review in the New York Times by Grace Glueck, received the Award of the Frankfurt Bibliotheque. An opera, "Famous" has been written, based on her life story with music composed by David Conte, libretto by John Stirling Walker, published Schirmer Music Company. Ultra Violet's art works are in the collections of the Museum Pompidou (Paris), the Knokke-Heist Museum (Belgium), and in the private collection of Whitney Museum trustee Beth deWoody. Her art has addressed the tragedy of 9/11 and how the iconography of that event has been, in select cases, transformed into a malleable icon that represents not only an act of terrorism and annihilation, but also one of commerciali

  • Asami Yoshiga  (+)

    Biography : Asami Yoshiga studied Nihonga (Japanese style painting) at the Musashino Art University, where she became interested in the relationship between nature and humanity. Through her artwork, she expresses the influence of nature on the Japanese sense of beauty and uncovers a particular Japanese aesthetic. Applying the Nihonga technique, known for its use in traditional painting, in a contemporary and avant-garde presentation, Yoshiga's images appear through veils of silk-like teteron cloth. By applying of ink and pigment on separated layers of transparent fabric, she creates a dream-like and ethereal quality that invites the viewer to enter the hushed world of the landscape. Her art portrays a deep sense of reverence for nature and the natural world and engenders a human-nature dynamic without the representation of the human figure. Since graduating in 1999, her six solo exhibitions have placed her as one of the leading young protagonists in th new Nihonga movement. In the last five years, she has been included in the exhibitions at the Ueno Royal Museum, the Gunma Museum of Art, the Biennale for the Museum of Modern Art in Gunma, the Sato Museum of Art, and the Toyohashi Museum of Art.
