Kimiyo MISHIMA “Works since the painting period:1965-“

Kimiyo MISHIMA “Works since the painting period:1965-“Kimiyo Mishima《Untitled》1971 

Gallery Yamaki Fine Art is pleased to present Kimiyo MISHIMA (1932-) as the third solo show at our gallery.

This is the second round of the exhibition “Painting Period 1954-1970” in 2013. We will show the series of paintings in the early 70s and copperplate prints in the 80s, both of which have rarely been spotlighted.
We hope you will have a look to follow the tracks of Mishima’s versatile works.

We will hold a reception party with the artist at 17:00-19:00 on September 1, Sat.
We will be happy to have you at our gallery.
