TOGA TRIANGLE VOL.03
WANTO "Thoughts on the Road"
June14 (Fri) - July 10 (Wed) 2024
Opening Reception: May 14 (Tue) 18:00-20:00
 
WANTO is a graffiti writer who roam the city streets. He captues landscapes using oil paint on steel plates that he uses as a canvas. The distinct rust that accumilates on each piece is one of the highlights of this body of work.
 
 “There are various places within the streets that I have once walked past. Someone is there, or something is there. They each have their own shapes and colors, and I feel the many emotions that emanate from them. This is a series of paintings that use oil paint to express the loneliness, the laughter, the shine and dampness of each.”
- WANTO

TOGA TRIANGLE VOL.03
"KOSUKE IKESHIMA"
May14 (Tue) - June 9(Sun) 2024
 
Kosuke Ikeshima's wood carvings are finished with only a knife and without using a file, so the natural texture of wood is preserved. By combining this traditional Japanese wood carving technique with Western interpretations, Ikeshima creates works that incorporate perspectives such as mythology and views on life and death. He has also taken an interest in shrine carvings, and in recent years has carved carvings on the main gate of Mt. Hanagi Shaolin Temple in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture. This time TOGA TRIANGLE, we introduce you to see life-sized female statues, painted moths, and other creatures carved from wood.

TOGA TRIANGLE VOL.02
NAGNAGNAG
