In this event, internationally acclaimed artist Enrico Isamu Oyama shares insights into this artistic practise, his hometown Tokyo and the Japanese art scene. Living in New York and Tokyo, he has created countless paintings and murals, linking aerosol 'graffiti' culture with abstract art and Japanese tradition. Enrico was commissioned by the Ashmolean Museum to create new works for the Tokyo: Art & Photography exhibition. 'Tokyo is an intense, sometimes stressful place, which produces a unique creativity,' he says, 'I feel my art is definitely influenced by the environment of Tokyo, which I grew up in'.
The event is part of the Oxford TORCH's 2021 Japan Season. Viewers are invited to chat with the speakers and ask questions.
