“It is slightly eerie, but somewhere cute ” Takanori Ishizuka has created such mysterious creatures.The world in which the creatures live is funny, mysterious and sometimes  cruelty. At first glance, their looks seem cute, but they seem to give us a sarcastic glance. That action seems like the instinct of human in itself. Ishizuka visualizes human emotions through these creatures, and creates the mysterious world.
His art work are not limited to a painting, and in recent years he has made many wood carving. The fantastic creatures and the unique scent of wood overlap each other, and will invite the people who visited this exhibition to the world in which they lives.
In 2015, the solo exhibition “KEMONO Apartment” was held in Yokohama,and many people visited to see his art works. This time is the solo exhibition for the first time in about a year and a half since that.
We are looking forward to seeing you.
