MEGUMI OGITA GALLERY B1 2-16-12 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo

MEGUMI OGITA GALLERY is hosting Yohei Sugita(b.1983)'s solo exhibition.
As for the oil painting of Yohei Sugita, most of the motif were quoted by the Internet and a fashion magazine, while taking a style of classic oil painting like the Impressionists.
The superficial image that seems to fade away immediately may get attention in limited time, but the admiration is not permanent.
However, It will seem to express something essential if this kind of superficial image is converted into an oil painting. Sugita's work revealed that Western style of oil painting still functioned as a symbol of the authority and make people's eyes be blind.
Sugita is asking the significance of the painting and the meaning of being a painter in the present day truly.
In this time, we'll release Yohei's 18 new oil paintings that have landscape, still life and portrait motif. All of the motif is the typical motif of oil painting tracking back the art history, we will see Sugita's challenge of transforming the conception of oil painting.
Don't miss Sugita's NEW oil paintings.
