WHAT AN ARTFUL LIFE
JAPANESE ARTISTS ASSOCIATION
OF
NEW YORK

January 8 - 19, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 10, 6 - 8 PM



Early and recent works by artists with decades-long career

What drives artists to keep making art without asking rewards in any life circumstances?

 

Each time the works of celebrity artists are traded in hundreds of millions of dollars in the auction houses, the world makes much ado about the news. However, there are countless artists in New York who have nothing to do with these record-breaking prices. It is no exaggeration to say that there are only a handful of artists who sell works at such a high price.

 

Since the early 1960s many Japanese artists have moved to the United States to pursue their new artistic expressions. While they are experiencing various obstacles as immigrants, they have sometimes met people who have helped them.  Now one generation of artists has become old, the next generation has entered the second half of their lives. The works of each generation have been changed over the years and show their life experiences as well as artistic maturity.

 

In What An Artful Life exhibition, you will see the earlier and recent works of each artist who has continued in the making of art in New York for many decades.  For younger artists this could be a profound opportunity to contemplate the creative life.

 

The exhibition speaks to not only artists, but also anyone who is willing to observe the life with never fading passion.
