DESCRIPTION

a Gallery is proud to present a series of art works by Mitsuru Watanabe, an established Japanese artist. Inspired by Western artists like Rousseau’s and Bosch’s iconic paintings, Watanabe transfuses the classic backgrounds with his forever subject matters, his two daughters. Portrayed in school uniform, the little girls appear to be traveling and exploring the different realm of reality and fantasy in the mysterious dimension. 

Watanabe’s excellent painterly technique and unique vision in his subject matter has expanded the horizon of contemporary Japanese art, where the possibility of the old and the new, the Oriental and the Western, the reality and fantasy can co-exist to create something completely unique yet familiar.
