Take Ninagawa Art Gallery

Take Ninagawa’s exhibitions are typically an irreverent, scrappy, Pop affair, yet they are rooted in important historical and subcultural movements. One of Japan’s most influential artists, Shinro Ohtake is renowned for his mixed-media scrapbooks – riotous, densely layered collages of vintage fashion magazine imagery, leaves and icons of soft-core porno, all encrusted with paint.

Misaki Kawai’s cartoon-like paintings and installations are influenced by the Japanese manga style known as heta-uma, which employs awkward, “bad” technique to achieve “good”, unpretentious results. If you venture to this gallery, hidden in the narrow backstreets of Higashi-Azabu, in the shadow of the Mori Art Museum, you’ll always encounter a memorable exhibition.
