Born 1940, in Kyoto.

Painter, engraver.

Ida Shoichi graduated from the Kyoto City University of Arts. He works a good deal in lithography and silk-screen printing, using contemporary photo reportage techniques. This allows him to incorporate images taken from newspapers or other facets of daily life. He has cut himself off from any ethnic roots he might have had; which makes him a perfect example of the international Pop style, no more Japanese than American. As an artist he is not lacking in humour, and using Madison Avenue’s own tools creates fake publicity images that can be either funny or disturbing....

Born 1954, in Okinawa.

Painter, pastellist, sculptor, lithographer.

Manabu Kochi acquired his artistic education on his travels across cultures and civilisations, from Tokyo to Florence, from London to Paris, where he eventually settled. He works in acrylics and oil pastels. He is also a lithographer, which allows him to increase the volume of his graphic work, and a sculptor: some of his sculpture is in cast bronze. His artistic identity is a synthesis of different influences - children’s drawings, Miró, Brauner, and pop art are dominant in his painting; and primitive art, Miró, Arp, and Max Ernst in his sculpture. His paintings and pastels are a maze of simplified images and juxtaposed graphic signs. Françoise Monnin has described his bestiary sculpture as ‘... anatomic fragments: a head on a foot, three fingers on a belly... a man with a leaf for a head beside a feather with a mouth....’...

Britta Erickson

(b Handan, Hebei Province, Dec 4, 1963).

Chinese painter and printmaker. At 17 he began to study the art of woodcuts and five years later, in 1985, he entered the Print Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Despite his early interest in printmaking, however, it was his oil paintings that initially won him acclaim. Following his graduation in 1989, he devoted himself almost exclusively to oil painting, earning a place in many international art exhibitions, including the honour of the first solo show held by the Japan Foundation for a non-native artist.

In the early 1990s, art critics grouped the work of Fang Lijun and other figure painters with similar background and style under the title, Cynical Realism. Their cynicism is generally attributed to the fact that they came of age at a time when ideologies were in a state of flux, namely during China’s Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (1966–76) and its aftermath. Furthermore, they witnessed the forced closure of the seminal ...
