Kyoto is old Japan, the thousand-year capital, a time capsule of quiet temples, sublime gardens and colourful shrines. Impossibly charming ancient streets stirs the imagination, and geishas, sublime and ethereal float by, cast in the half-shadows of lantern light.
White Space Art Asia presents their latest show, simply titled Kyoto, a solo exhibition by Wang Zi Jiang. Wang was trained as a Chinese ink painter at the Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts, and migrated to Japan in the eighties. Kyoto represents his twenty-eight years of impression and love for Japan and the pixie dust of its culture.
The show, to be held at the ION Art Gallery from 27th September to 4th October will showcase over forty of Wang’s incredibly detailed and atmospheric ink creations. The artist will be present in person and will be creating a two-metre piece live over two days, starting from the evening reception on 29th September.
Opening: Friday, Sep 29 from 5:30-8pm
Venue: ION Art Gallery, Level 4, 290 Orchard Road, Singapore
When: 27 Sep - 4 Oct 2017,
