Her past and recent artworks that feature Sumi’s rhythmic shade, smudge and beautiful thin ink will be exhibited. A strained air and gentle time coexist in traces drawn by Sumi.

By popular demand, the Homage to Klimt exhibition has been extended with some changes. Gustav Klimt, a painter in Vienna at the end of the 19th century, created his own style influenced by Japanese traditional arts and crafts. This new exhibition features works created by Hiroko Koshino that exude Japanese style. The contemporary-feeling works are born from a combination of her spirit of respect for nature and gorgeous gold. Please visit this world of harmony between West and East.

We will hold an exhibition entitled “Hiroko Koshino — Homage to Klimt” at KH Gallery Ginza. The glow of gold and the sensibility to take the era ahead.

Her most recent work, created on the occasion of appearance on a special Klimt episode of the NHK program “Nichiyo Bijutsukan” broadcast in January 2018, will also be exhibited. We hope you will enjoy Koshino Hiroko’s innovative expression, which responds across time to Klimt’s spirit. Tuesday, March 13 – Saturday, May 19, 2018 Closed: Sunday, March … Continue reading
