This will be Koki Tsujimoto’s first exhibition at Seizan Gallery in three years. Employing pigments that burst with heat, his works seem to paint even the air around them with dazzling color. The figures depicted in this many-hued universe are animals that symbolize good fortune. In their powerful, dynamic forms we sense a sincere prayer for good in the world. We look forward to showing you the growth of this energetic, rapidly maturing artist.
