Masato KOBAYASHI

Paint of this Planet

ShugoArts Online Show

from 20 February 2021

 

Paint of this Planet — Duifhuisstraat 52, the second volume of the autobiographical novel trilogy written by Masato Kobayashi, was published in October, 2020. In the first volume of the trilogy, released in 2018, Masato Kobayashi's fateful encounter with "Sensei" (a high school teacher who later became Kobayashi's muse/spring of inspiration) leads him into the world of painting in this inspirational story during which the artist matures through his painting. In the second volume, the author leaves his studio in Japan and embarks on a dazzling pictorial adventure. The year is 1996, and in this volume, considered a masterpiece, the author’s youth is illustrated as he travels around the international art scene and establishes his original painting style in which he is stretching canvas and painting simultaneously.

On this occasion, ShugoArts presents a part of Kobayashi's theory of painting from the novel, as well as a special movie of his large-scale works Unnamed #6 and Unnamed #10, which were created in Ghent in 1998 but many have not had a chance to see them in Japan.

Portfolio the first editioned artwork created by Lee Kit

2020.12.25 Fri

ShugoArts is pleased to announce the completion of Portfolio, the first editioned artwork created by Lee Kit. 

This group of new artworks—which plays an important role in his solo exhibition (Screenshot) currently on view at ShugoArts—is from a photo documentary that he has been posting on Facebook for the past six years. As Kit calls it a photo-documentary or photo-album, Portfolio is a record of his daily life while showing that Kit’s artistic practice is always moving forward. In this work ten images are inkjet printed on Arches watercolor paper. As befits Kit, who aims to expand “painting” by replicating images and projecting light, this group of works is printed as if it were painted on watercolor paper and can be considered as “works on paper.”

The ten prints are packaged in a folder-like box with a text written by the artist.
