"Cage and Canary - Elusive chirping entities"

2017.10.14 [Sat] - 11.5 [Sun]

Renowned Tokyo artist and Musashino Art University professor Yuji Akatsuka presents a new dimension of his Cage and Canary series.

The vision underlying Mr. Akatsuka’s series is of the analogy between an artistic work and the medium (the sketchbook containing it) and a difficult-to-catch canary and a cage.

Please enjoy Akatsuka’s world of art, with his deep and refined coloring and mysterious, magical images.

“A bird inside of me in a dream
a bird outside of me outside the dream…”
