Artist : Mikuo KONOKI
Mikuo KONOKI was once known as a pioneer of “life art”, “the most potential new emerging artist after world war Ⅱ”, and was praised in and abroad Japan by the 10 m * 4 m large size works and the bold and exquisite spiritual expression in his art. Continuing with his creation, the theme turns to “Love”. Different colors, different forms express the love between human beings, animals, plants and the whole nature, but also the inner love of artist himself.
We know “KURO” who is the model with yellow or pink dress , and sometimes dreaming also . We are surprise at such a cute creature, maybe the new works of this exhibition will make us feel moved deeply with lively expression like us human beings.
And Ganda-sculpture, new life was poured into scrap metals that used to be discarded is kind of “love”. It’s very magic to see the interesting sculptures and life itself being cherished is very important for all of us.
Mikuo KONOKI thinks that China, Japan and other parts of the world should pay emphasis on “love”.
He created lots of works of cats and organized 100 cat-drawing artists to exhibit cat-works 7 years ago which now is held once a year. Japan has appeared “cat-boom”. Maybe cats have become humans ‘companion that make them forget the sorrow or lonesome. And what is about China?
