This time we are preparing a solo exhibition of Japanese artist SHIRIAGARI Kotobuki. 尻上がりin Japanese means getting better and better. The first exhibition in Shanghai is also a small-scale retrospective exhibition of the artist, through which we can have a rough idea of his entire artistic career.
The original manga and works of the artist at various periods, which were created when he was a cartoonist, will be displayed in the entry hall. While his paintings will be displayed in another room with the whole room full of ink-wash paintings created by the artist on the spot. His world will fill the whole space; there’s also a room displaying his image works.
These works look kawaii, adorable and relaxing. But after burst out laughing, if you give it a second thought, you will see that what the artist tries to express through these works is serious.
