galerie frank elbaz is pleased to announce the representation of Kenjiro Okazaki.
Okazaki’s exhibition “Kenjiro Okazaki: TOPICA PICTUS / Rue de Turenne” was at the gallery in Paris earlier this year.
Okazaki (born in 1955 in Tokyo) is a Japanese visual artist whose works span several genres including painting, sculpture, landscape and architecture. His works have been featured in public collections throughout Japan and in exhibitions internationally. In 2002, Okazaki was selected as the director of the Japanese pavilion of the International Architecture Exhibition in Venice Biennale. His works include a collaborative performance ‘I Love my Robot’ with choreographer Trisha Brown. He received the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship at Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (HMSG) in 2014.
Okazaki is extremely active as a theoretician and critic, and is the author or co-author of several books, including “Renaissance: Condition of Experience” featuring his analysis of Filippo Brunelleschi, and “Abstract Art as Impact: The Concrete Genealogy of Abstract Art”, which received the Minister of Education Award for Fine Arts in 2019.
