Above Second Gallery is proud to present the solo exhibition Shinagawa Shinju featuring the hybrid worlds of Japan-born artist Tat Ito.
In this selection of paintings, Tat Ito paints like the storytellers of Japanese rakugo, a form of verbal entertainment based on comical monologues about ordinary lives. Taking the position of a painterly rakugoka, or lone storyteller, Ito illustrates shared histories and experiences to create witty, profound, and sometimes-comical narratives of the world.
