Two distinct styles come together in a new exhibition at the brand new café & art space Bridge near Asakusa, Tokyo. Visual graphics designer Makoto Yabuki (previously) and painter Ohgushi (previously) will present Re:Particles, a digital interpretation of Ohgushi’s “Particles” series, in which he creates sensuous flowers by dripping ink on to wet canvases. The show will be on display through May 6, 2012.
Below is a video from the opening reception at Bridge. The video is more about the art space then the art being shown, but it still provides a few glimpses of the work that resulted from the collaboration.
If you’re not familiar with Ohgushi’s “Particle” series, which this work is based on, have a look at some of these stunning paintings. And be sure to watch the video at the end, which shows the painting process that Ohgushi uses. It’s really fascinating!
