About the artist

Born in Tokyo in 1973, today Yoshihito Kawase splits his time between Tokyo and Ibaraki. He completed his PhD in Japanese-style painting at Tokyo University of the Arts. In his most recent collection of modern Japanese paintings, Kawase emphasizes the relationship between the image and the texture of the underlying materials that support it. In his words, “for a simple and intelligent composition, the margin plays an important role, comparable to a semi-protagonist rather than a supportive role.” The texture of the paper or silk is as important as the inks, metals, and paints that rest upon it.

Kawase’s paintings have been featured in solo and group shows throughout Japan and currently resides in permanent collections such as the Ibaraki Museum of Modern Art and the Tokugawa Art Museum. He is the recipient of the Yamatane Art Museum Nihonga Award and the 13th Sato International Culture Foundation Scholarship. Named first runner-up in 2016, Kawase received an honorable mention in the 2017 Ronin | Globus Artist-in-Residence Program.
