Shinya SAKURAI  “ Love Pool ”

Shinya SAKURAI  “ Love Pool ”《Love Pool》 70×50cm mixed media on cloth

Gallery Yamaki Fine Art will present a solo exhibition of works by Shinya SAKURAI. Born in Hiroshima Prefecture in 1981, Sakurai has lived in Italy since graduating from Osaka University of Arts. Currently based in Trino, he presents solo exhibitions in Europe, Japan and so on and also directs a fashion show or a theater . In 2010, he was invited to “ VOCA ” , The Ueno Royal Museum ( 2010 ) , and he is drawing attention as one of the young talented Japanese artists . The current exhibition, Sakurai’s first solo exhibition at Gallery Yamaki Fine Art, will feature approximately 20 paintings.

Since starting to live in Italy , Sakurai has looked at the gaps of image that cased by difference of nationality or position . Because heart mark that Sakurai uses for his works is cosmopolitan sign, we think of our own issue of love or peace through his works. For Sakurai, born in Hiroshima , using heart mark is important doing to find his own identity and perhaps the works by him are parts of him . We hope you will take this opportunity to view Sakurai’s works.
