Exhibition of Mitsuru SUYAMA: Along with Notre-Dame..., at the galerie nichido Fukuoka


February 9 [Sat]-17 [Sun], 2019. Open every day during the exhibition.

Mr. Suyama is a painter who lived at the Iriomote Island in Okinawa Prefecture, and keeps on creating the elaborate pieces in realistic style. He exhibits his works in the galerie nichido Fukuoka after an interval of five years. He has been drawing something close to his daily life, as shells, insects, flowers, mangroves, besides musical scores and cards, listening to the sounds of wind and wave at the Island, as well as classical music.
For this exhibition, he newly created the many pieces taking some motifs from the city of Paris and Notre-Dame Cathedral, where he first visited three years ago for his exhibition. His paintings arise us the feelings of awe to the human civilization. Not merely the realistic paintings we know, but we can see the original realistic style on his paintings. Their silence and calm bring the viewers into the world of his paintings. We are looking forwards to seeing you at the gallery to step into the World View of Mr. Suyama.
