Participant Profile

Ryo Shinagawa

The painter. Born in 1987 in Osaka.
He is based in Kyoto. While reconsidering the painting and cultural history of the East, he takes on the challenge of expanding the possibilities of new painting in the modern era. While developing a wide range of artistic expression, from traditional genres such as hanging scrolls and fusuma door paintings to modern architectural spaces, my work is centered on the question: “What is painting?”
Major solo exhibitions include “Re:Action” (Fukuda Art Museum panorama gallery / Kyoto), “RYO SHINAGAWA” (Eslite Gallery / Taipei), “LANDSCAPE” (OIL by Bijutsu Techo gallery / Tokyo), etc. He also produces works for temples and companies such as Kenninji temple Ryosoku-in, Tenreizan Shorin-in, Tiger Vacuum Bottle Co., Ltd. (Osaka), and Japan Airlines Co., Ltd. (Tokyo).
