A group exhibition “MIYABI” will be exhibited from May 20 at one of the leading contemporary art galleries in Singapore, Sunjin Galleries, showing works by three Japanese artists Tomoko Taniguchi, Yoichi Ogata and VIWA. The exhibition is curated by Tokyo-based art management office ARI.

MIYABI is a word that expresses the aristocratic elegance of Japan from ancient times, an elegance that exudes a beauty that makes one want to see more of its essence modestly enveloped within the veil. This exhibition is a myriad of artworks presented by three artists -Tomoko Taniguchi who was raised during the post-atomic-bomb Hiroshima, and Yoichi Ogata and VIWA who are the new generation leading contemorary Japan- for the future from Japan, each working in different styles and media. These three very talented artists embrace their own unique sense of aesthetics, a sense that is graceful, not gaudy, which has resulted from the DNA of the Japanese.
