Description: Six floor of gallery space, a separate artist or exhibit on each floor. I visited 3 exhibits, all of which were very welcoming and the art was quite diverse both in its style, skill, and subject matter. The highlight for me was the work of the following artists:
- 齋藤弘光 [Hiromitsu Saito]
- 山下由介 [strider] / [Yasuke Yamashita]
- 伊藤秀司 [Hideshi Ito]
- 服部桜子 [Hattori Sakurako]
- 橋本晶子[Akiko Hashimoto]
One of the artists had a very appealing style I call fast food realism, which consists of lovingly detailed paintings of McDonald’s wrappers, overflowing refrigerators, and piles of discarded packaging.
