Yugo Mabe was born in 1955 at San Paulo, as a third son of the renowned Brazilian artist, Manabu Mabe. Greatly influenced by his father’s working process, Yugo decided to become an artist under his father’s tutelage, despite having studied commercial advertising in college. Since then, having father as a mentor and a strict critic, he successfully held his first solo exhibition in 1980 at San Paulo and has been exhibiting his works ever since. The motif of his early works was mainly flowers but it gradually transitioned into the portrayal of landscapes and sceneries. As Yugo himself admits, his works are deeply influenced by his father, who is often referred to as the “magician of color.” However, in order to establish his own career as an artist, Yugo began to consciously distance himself from his father’s style and started to search for his own expression.
This exhibition at Wada Garou Tokyo mainly consists of his landscape paintings. The harmony between his bold use of color and nuanced brushwork will surely invite viewers to a fantastic world created by Yugo. We are looking forward to seeing you here. ・Dates: October 25th 2019 - December 15th ・Venue: Wada Garou Tokyo 3F 3-5-16, Ginza, Chuo-Ku, Tokyo 104-0061, Japan ・Opening Hours: 1PM-6:30PM, Tue-Sun Closed: Mondays & National Holidays
