Ken Shiozaki paints animals and imaginary creatures with a uniquely humorous perspective. In recent years, he has created works which reference Hokusai and collaborated with Marvel Comics, greatly expanding his reach beyond the normal confines of Nihonga. His works have earned popularity through exhibitions at department stores and this will be his first solo exhibition with Seizan Gallery in seven years, following on a previous exhibition in 2012. We hope you are as excited as we are.
