Revered by the art world as “overcoming traditional calligraphy in favor of radical expressiveness”, Yu-ichi Inoue has earned his place in the roll-call of the 20th -century’s most important artists.
The works of this Japanese artist may be based on Chinese calligraphy, but they transcend cultures, inviting the viewer on a path of discovery while presenting his philosophy on life and his own creative journey. Our Gallery is going to showcase Yui-chi’s avant-garde pieces that are perfect examples of the international appeal and thought-provoking nature of his work.
The Yu-ichi Inoue exhibition runs at Our Gallery from 22 March-4 May 2019. The works presented in this exhibition include Yu-ichi’s early works, the renowned works he created in the post-WWII era, and the works he made during the last phase of his life. From Yu-ichi’s“Ichimoji-sho” (one character 一字書) to “Tamoji-sho”(multiple-character pieces 多文字書), the works showcased in this exhibition cover many styles adopted by Yu-ichi throughout his creative years. This show allows the audience to see Yu-ichi’s works individually. At the same time, they can also focus on the person, Yu-ichi Inoue, who created these impressive works and try to
understand what makes him and his works so fascinating.
