Crossing the Frontiers of Tradition and Innovation - The Beauty and Soul

of Japanese Creation

Japanese art exhibition in London hosted by Radiant Star Art agency

Japan-based Radiant Star Art agency LLC will host “The Beauty and Soul of Japanese Creation” at two venues in London starting on October 16, 2017. Sixteen Japanese artists and artisans will exhibit various works including traditional arts and crafts, modern art works, as well as subculture works which characterize modern-day Japan.

While today’s Japanese creation incorporates tradition, it also includes a new wave of creators who have reinterpreted the tradition by reflecting the changes of time in their works.

Many of the artworks presented at the exhibition differ from the Japanese sceneries, animals, and plants typically associated with Japanese creation, but they still convey and include the traditional sensibility and elaborate techniques that are unique to Japanese artists and artisans.

Sensitivity, Shosa or grace, and a deep sense of aesthetics - all this profoundness and technique applied by Japanese creators will be exhibited for those who love art in London.

In addition, we hope that this exhibition will provide people with opportunities to better

understand the Japanese culture in general - by experiencing the ever-evolving Japanese creative scene.

* “Shosa” is the description of the movement of the body concentrating on the movement itself, for specific activities. Often related to the movements of traditional Japanese Art, for example Tea Ceremonies)
