Young Japanese contemporary master Ko-Hey Arikawa has created new artworks for his Bangkok debut exhibition "All For Happy" at Neilson Hays Library.
He shares the elemental forces of honest, innocent child-like expression with his audience by combining outstanding technical ability with imaginative inspiration. Showcasing vibrant emotions on children's faces, he poetically reconfigures visionary vistas and opens portals to the nation of imagination.
Coupled with the freedom and fantasy of childhood, these dazzling acrylic and mixed-media compositions explode with visual power. He catches and expresses delight, anger, sorrow and comfort which directly reach out to people's emotional depth.
His annual exhibitions in Okinawa draw more than 10,000 visitors every year. Replicas of his works are sold at galleries and museum shops all over Japan and newly produced works sell out as soon as they go on sale.
His exhibitions are scheduled to take place every year in his home country and overseas. Cultivating a strong reputation in the international world of art, his artwork is treasured in both public and private collections.
