Lika HAGI, Japanese painter was born in 1957 in Tokyo. Based in France since 1985, her major theme is "The journey to the origin": a vision of life and time, between the eternal and the ephemeral, without beginning or end.
Son and grand-son of Bizen potters emeritus who were declared during their lifetime 'National Treasures of Japan', Kazu Fujiwara gives us a production of raw terracotta reflecting perfectly the naturalist ideal of Japanese aesthetics.
With a bit of provocation, Eriko Takano offers "Nothing" : a complete world in miniature, with its tiny population and idyllic way of life. One way to tell us that within the void of our lives, if one looks closely, there is still some amount of good things to be found, uplifting for the heart and likely to make life more beautiful.
Born in Mytilene in 1923, he moved to Paris as a painter in 1947. In the 50s and 60s he exhibited in Amsterdam, London and Paris before joining Galerie Pierre Matisse in New York. Appointed curator of the Tériade Museum in 1987, he returned to Greece where he continued his work until his death in 2010.
Accompanied by his father, Kotaro, and his brother, Yoshinori, also both artists, Kazunobu Iwamura presents his work as a painter and that of his close relatives. Valuable record of an artistic production over two generations.
Born in 1951, Alain Croullebois receives his artistic education at the School of Graphic Arts Corvisart in Paris. At the age of 25 he began an interior journey that will allow him to meet great Indian, Vietnamese, and Tibetan masters : they will guide him along the path of his own revelation.
Brimming with love for women and wine, TABO is back with us in Paris for our best enjoyment.
