Extraordinary Odyssey —My Work Exposed!VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Art for Breakfast with Hayaki Nishigaki
Asia Society Japan met artist, Hayaki Nishigaki back in 2020 at his studio, Haidenban, in Kyoto. He is a graduate of Kyoto University of Art and Design who studied under Professor Noboru Tsubaki. His works have made an evolution during the pandemic. His works are created using sumi ink on Japanese paper in the very traditional Japanese painting methods that tell a story. His motif is the ever-famous Japanese monster, Godzilla, which he uses as a vessel for his artistry, telling a story within his paintings.
He will join Art for Breakfast in October to present his works and tell us about his journey. Why does he continue to use sumi ink and Godzilla within his artworks? How has the pandemic affected him and his works? Will there be new motifs? What is he trying to communicate to the world?
With the experience of his artist-in-residency in Qatar this year, Hayaki Nishigaki will unravel himself about his works and his new experiences.
