HUMANiMAL-KITAMURA Kou Solo Exhibition

Venue:art space co-jin

This exhibition presents mainly a series of “HUMANiMAL” art work created by Kou KITAMURA, alongside some other oil paintings, esquisse (rough sketches) and poems that are written down daily.
The word ”HUMANiMAL” has been invented by the artist through a combination of the words human and animal. They are not just depicted as humanised animals, but are created as some form of ideal creatures which maintain both the elements of animals and the intelligence that human beings possess; the artist continue to elaborate upon those ideal creatures which represent the essence of love flowing through as a common feeling amongst all living creatures. In addition, you will also be able to see various shifting focuses through his pieces. For example, a fully compassionate look when he draws a bear family exudes heartfulness, and a sensual aspect is created through the way he draws a goat dancing in the beautiful moonlight.
His artworks are like scenes from a story, and the pictures make us wonder what might come next. Please enjoy his extensional daydream expression, “embodiment of love” created by Kitamura.
