Shin Koyama : Pika-chan

WHEN : 20th November – 23rd December
WHERE : Jan Mnaton Gallery

Now based in Arita, the home of Japanese blue and white ceramics, Koyama continues to explore manga-style motifs with the comically grotesque.

Pika-chan is a creature born out of the nuclear disaster of Fukushima. Half angel of death and half kewpie doll, Pika-chan represents the artist’s anxiety about Japan’s heavy reliance on nuclear technology despite is unstable land mass.
