AISHONANZUKA is pleased to announce “Stage 8,” an exhibition of new works by Mustone. The exhibition will be open in Dec 8th through Jan 6th 2018. We are pleased to have his first show in Hong Kong.
Mustone was born in the Tokushima Prefecture in 1976, where he continues to reside and base his artistic practice. Since graduating from Tama Art University he has published original comic books including “Nekoman,” while in parallel pursuing his expressive activities in galleries and the street art scene. Over the course of his career, Mustone has produced numerous works referencing Japanese cartoons and video games in accordance to the methodologies of appropriation art, which in itself had served as an important context for the formation of pop art represented by artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
The exhibition features a selection of approximately 8 recent painting works. An opening reception with the artist in attendance will be held on 8th December from 7pm. we look forward to seeing you at our gallery and hope you enjoy the show.
AISHONANZUKA 將由二O一七年十二月八日至二O一八年一月六日舉行日本藝術家 Mustone 於香港首個個人展覽《Stage 8》，是次展覽將展出其最新作品。
Mustone 於1976年生於日本德島縣，並在此生活及創作。他從多摩美術大學畢業後，在出版漫畫書籍如《Nekoman》等同時，亦活躍於藝廊與街頭藝術圈。隨著創作事業發展，Mustone創作了大量參考了日本卡通和電子遊戲的作品，並以挪用藝術的方式呈現，當中亦是普普藝術代表藝術家如Andy Warhol 及Roy Lichtenstein所採用的重要應用手法。
