Sato Sakura Museum is very proud to present the 3rd ‘FROM’ exhibition of the Nihonga (Japanese painting) group. The group of artists who will shape the future of Japanese painting established the group ‘FROM’ in 2020, with the goal of doing research, taking on challenges, and presenting their work. The name ‘FROM’ includes the meaning of “the group of artists who share a common sense, despite their different origins and education, as well as diverse backgrounds and affiliations.” The ten Nihonga artists participating in this group exhibition are Kazutoshi Oshimoto, Mao Kawasaki, Yoshihiro Kita, Meiko Kinoshita, Osamu Sekiya, Hiroko Takeda, Shugo Tajima, Kohei Nagasawa, Mikiko Noji, and Megumi Yamaura. Through the works of these ten artists living in the present age, we welcome you to experience all the breadth of the new wind of Japanese Nihonga painting – which has always tried to pioneer new expressions while preserving important traditions.

Message from the artist

We are pleased to announce the 3rd ‘FROM’ exhibition.
This group exhibition features large-scale works by ten artists focusing on ‘Nihonga,’ or traditional Japanese painting.
As the societal perception of the term ‘Nihonga’ evolves over time, the participating artists each bring their unique perspectives and approaches to the table. The significance of this group exhibition lies in the juxtaposition, collision, and resonance of the artists’ works, from which we hope to witness the essence of “contemporary Nihonga” and the more universal ‘contemporary painting.’ We believe that working on large-scale paintings will motivate artists to continuously explore creativity and challenge themselves, ultimately expanding their individual potential.
We kindly invite you to attend and appreciate the exhibition, and we would be grateful for your candid critiques. In organizing this event, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the Sato Sakura Museum and all the parties involved for their tremendous support and contributions.
