Mugi NAKAJIMA｜Artist 1978 Born in Nagano and raised in Osaka. 2002 Graduated from Kyoto City University of Arts, Faculty of Fine Arts.
He works mainly on the creation of abstract paintings, taking in events that extend from there. Through the activities, he wants himself to be a "medium" that is free from everything and can be connected to anything.
Nakajima considers "movement, depth and light" as the fundamental elements of the painting. He expresses three elements in his series "luminous dropping". A large amount of paint slowly poured keeps the fluidity even after it dried on the canvas and it expresses various colors accompanied with delicate differences. Space is born within the layer of paint and the work wears light. Through his act of painting, he expects that beauty (sometimes controversially) will become a common language and art will become a medium that enables him to connect with the general society. He believes this is the next development and purpose of painting. We are having an Opening Reception on March 14th, 18:00-. Mugi Nakajima will be there!
