Solo exhibition of Masanao Hirayama “壁画(Murals)”
レセプション：7月7日（土）18pm - 20pm
Hotel Anteroom Kyoto is pleased to announce Masanao Hirayama’s solo exhibition 壁画(Murals), on view from 7th July 2018 until 29th July 2018.
Masanao’s oeuvre of work is characterized by his simple, yet distinct and humorous lines which appeals to our inner child.
Born in 1976 in Kobe, Hirayama’s practice – who is based in Tokyo, extends beyond drawing and painting to the fields of performance, art and fashion.
The title of the exhibition 壁画(meaning mural), has its roots in history as the oldest form of drawing, transforming daily spaces and utilized within spaces of gatherings in sacred rituals. Here, the artist appears to challenge the very act of drawing: “Starting from an A4 or A3 piece of paper, I want to draw a mural as economically as possible”.
During the reception party, we also invite Kyoto-based book director Yuji Ono for a casual talk event.
The exhibition is an extension of Hirayama’s series of works spanning from 2017 and during his stay, Hirayama will utilize the hotel lobby space to create his works.
Please enjoy the exhibition along with the festivities of Gion Matsuri in Kyoto.
