.: Idealistically Hypocritical 2 by OGI :.

OGI a.k.a Ryuichi Ogino solo Exhibition.

” Idealistically Hypocritical 2 ” at Amp Cafe , Tokyo

Ryuichi Ogino is born in Tokyo in 1978. He grew up surrounded by Japan’s pop culture (anime / manga such as Gundam and Nausicaa, video games like Final Fantasy series, and all kinds of related merchandises, as well as; mostly imported from the US, fashion and music). Most notably, snowboarding, a trend well packaged and marketed as an alternative lifestyle, made a huge impact on Ogino, that it became his primary reason to go study in Colorado after finishing high-school in Japan.

Ogino attended a language school, then a college in Denver, CO. Then he moved to Oakland, CA to study at CCA (California College of the Arts). He graduated CCA majoring in Illustration in 2004, though around this time, he begun to question the gap between fine arts and illustration. His examination, along with the shift in his thought process – from seeking originality elsewhere to finding original voice through introspection – led him to realize that his passion is not in illustrating.

Upon his return to Tokyo in 2005, he quickly begun to see hyper-consumerism and its lack of context within as two major issues among Japan’s contemporary youth culture. And to counter those issues, he started to create art works that are based on “Out of the Context Mash-up” For instance, Ogino has been presenting triptych paintings in which each three panels represents different context of visual communications such as minimalism, pop culture, and decorative pattern. By intentionally placing different context right next to each other, Ogino tries to bring contrast between those contexts, asking viewers to reexamine them.

Good to be back, kissing hands and shaking babies.

The one Australian art magazine that has maintains a steady rate of awesomeness, with the dopest content, styling and above all consistency is King Brown Magazine by The Yok, a.k.a Yokadile Dundee or the Silver Crested Yokatoo, who despite his absence managed to throw together a tight little launch last Thursday at Gorker. Here’s some shots.

Who is the bigger intellectual property asshole?

Thursday, May 21st, 2009


Who is the bigger intellectual property asshole?

Is it the artist who has amassed a small fortune based on “appropriation” yet still sends cease and desist letters to other artists for appropriating his work? Or is it the largest (and only) US based nationally-oriented news service which fails to recognize “fair use” even when it literally stares them in the face?

Miyamura Gen

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

A traditionally trained Japanese calligrapher Miyamura Gen has developed the ancestral techniques into his own expression of minimal abstraction in which textural motif interplay within sweeping movements to create the most impressive, minimal yet most undeniably hardcore style.

INTRINSIC NATURE

Friday, May 15th, 2009

THE BUSY BUSY BEASTMAN IS AT IT AGAIN.

intrinsicnature_sydney

‘Intrinsic Nature’ is an exhibition of paintings by Sydney based artist Beastman (Brad Eastman). Using acrylic and ink on wood, his new intricately detailed, tight and colourfully patterned artworks further explore a parallel world of scaly skinned, bold outlined, beast-like characters gripped by fear, anger, stress, lust, jealousy, confusion and paranoia. Heraldry, symmetry, folklore, nature and the ocean are themes which are becoming more and more evident in his latest work. This is Beastman’s third solo exhibition, he has also exhibited artwork in Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, New Zealand, London and Germany over the last few years.
