Art work : Florentijn Hofman (The Netherlands), Lion,F.R.P, 90.0 × 133.0 × 165.0, 2019 /@studioflorentijnhofman
・
Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Kampen, The Netherlands in 2000 and then went to obtain MFA from the Kunsthochschule Weissensee in Berlin, Germany. Hofman aims to challenge the audience’s comfort levels by recasting the perspective of simple quotidian objects. The familiar and positive attributes of his artwork allow the public to explore art in a sociable and enjoyable way. Subsequently he crafts these everyday items into clear and iconic images, oddly oversized “toys” that surprise and delight through their sheer size and use of materials. One of Hofman’s most famous works is Rubber Duck (2007), a giant inflatable rubber duck reminiscent of the famous bath toy, and it has been seen in harbors across the world from France to Brazil, New Zealand to Hong Kong, and from Pittsburgh to even Santiago in Chili. The works are immediately identifiable and have an instant appeal. The attention Hofman gives to his surroundings lets him examine the possibility of material and explore the essence and the beauty of form and shape. He expands his imagination by merging the local culture into his artwork and evokes the missing interaction. Social engagement and intercommunication are key elements in Hofman’s creation as he seeks to generate an encounter for the audience with a universal aesthetic by sharing his passion for public art. The joy he creates leads audiences to abandon the idea of race and religion and to engage with the artworks. By reproducing large versions of everyday objects, Hofman hopes to inspire happiness and joy.

Art work : Ahhi Choi (Korea / Japan),A taijitu / Yin, Acrylic on board, 100.0φ, 2019 /@ahhi_choi
・
Ahhi Choi was born in Hyogo Prefecture Japan in 1983. The curvilinear movement in the work of Ahhi Choi is both buoyant and ecstatic, expressing the innate sense of adventure the artist possesses. He gained recognition after showing in New York in 2014 and has since exhibited internationally including in the United States, France, Italy, Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong. Choi’s work can be perceived as reflection of his subconscious mind. After studying in Los Angeles he traveled through the Western United States. During that trip, Choi explored the expansive network of National Parks, from Death Valley, the Grand Canyon to Yellowstone. It was during this stateside excursion that the artist developed an intimate bond with the grandeur and majesty of nature. Upon his return to his home city of Kobe, a malaise set in for Choi and it was the cramped and overcrowded
lifestyle of urban Japan that was causing him to feel nostalgic. Taking the flashes of inspiration that the artist experienced in day-to-day life he began to take ink to paper forming an abstract diary of his adventures. Letting his hand move organically across the page, Choi would interpret the silhouettes, pictures, words and letters from the well of his memory into energetic lines that are ubiquitous in throughout his work. In addition to painting, the artist has also extensively engaged in other artistic creations, including the design of shoes, fabrics, wine labels, cell phone cases and CD covers.

Art work :  Ronald Ventura (Philippines), Untitled, Oil on canvas, 30.5 × 40.6 cm, 2019 /@ronaldventurastudio
・
Born in 1973 in Manila, the Philippines, where he continues to live and work, Ronald Ventura ranks as one of the most acclaimed artists of his generation in Southeast Asia.
Soon after graduating from the University of Sto.Tomas, Manila (B.F.A) in 1993, he began to work as an instructor at College of Fine Arts & Design, his alma mater. Ventura’s paintings and sculptures are now among the most recognizable images of contemporary art in Southeast Asia with their unique combinations of figurative motifs. His work features a complex layering of images and styles, ranging from hyperrealism to cartoons and graffiti. Ventura takes the layering process in his work as a metaphor for the multifaceted national identity of the Philippines. Over the centuries, the profound influences of various occupying powers — Spain, Japan, and the United States — along with the underlying indigenous culture, have produced a complex and at times uneasy sense of identity. Ventura explores this historical and psychic phenomenon through a dialogue of images evoking East and West, high and low, old and young — seen, for example, in allusions to Old Master paintings or Japanese and American cartoons. He draws our attention to the “second skin” of cultural signifiers that each person carries with him, however unwittingly. Ventura views skin as an expressive surface — written on with tattoos, concealed under layers of imagery, or exploding outwards to reveal an inner world of fantasy and conflict.

Art work :  Fabio Modica (Italy), Gnosis Peace V, Mixed media on canvas, 356.0 × 200.0 cm, 2018 /@fabio_modica_artist
・
Fabio Modica was born in Catania, Sicily, in 1978. During his academic years he was inspired by the classical Renaissance and Greek and Latin mythology. His versatile spirit has encouraged him to incorporate different styles and mediums into his later works, which show a departure from the earlier representational style. Over time, Modica’s enduring realism has gradually yielded to the compelling drive for sheer lines and thick smudges of colour, which has ultimately led him towards a semi-abstracted texture. 
Modica’s most celebrated works are close-in portraits of female faces whose gaze pierces directly through the viewer. The meaning of everything is condensed in faces, especially in the eyes. Modica’s ‘faces’ shape fragments of memories, enigmatic moods and modernist “moments of being”. They have become part of two parallel series named “Gnosis” (i.e. ‘knowledge’ in Greek) and “Prisoners of Matter”, both internationally acclaimed since 2013. Modica believes that art is the most effective means to enhance self-awareness.

Miwa Komatsu (Japan)
@miwakomatsu
・
Born in Nagano in 1984, Komatsu spent her childhood immersed in nature, surrounded by animals and rich natural landscapes. Her artwork reflects this special connection to nature and its life cycles, resulting in works that convey a profound meditation and unique view on the beauty that can be found in life and death. Komatsu began copperplate engraving whilst studying at Joshibi College of Art and Design, and her work entitled “The Forty-ninth Day” was praised for its moving originality. After creating this piece when she was just 20 years of age, Komatsu began to concentrate on her career as a professional painter. She also started to expand her ways of expression by incorporating materials such as acrylic paint and even Arita porcelain in her art. Komatsu’s artwork often incorporates performance elements and explores the theme of divine SPIRIT. She has presented numerous solo shows at the Museum of Tetsu, Kitano Museum of Art Annex and Ueda City Museum of Art in her birth city of Nagano. In 2014 Komatsu dedicated her work to the Izumo Taisha Shrine, the oldest shrine in Japan and considered to be where the deity has the strongest presence, which elevated her creative power even further. In 2015 she exhibited her Arita porcelain ‘Guardian Lion Dogs’ at the Chelsea Flower Show in London, which won the Gold Prize and is now part of the permanent collection at the British Museum. Komatsu’s art continues to attract international attention and has been collected by institutions such as the World Trade Center in New York. In addition, the artist won YOUNG ARTIST OF THE YEAR in 2017 and has been invited to appear in television advertisements as well as becoming the Official Ambassador for Maison Christian Dior. Her December 2018 solo show saw record figures for attendance and sales, evidence of Komatsu’s ever-growing influence and activity in Japanese art scene.
