I first visited Havana in November 2016, a few days after Fidel Castro died, and just under a year before Hurricane Irma hit Cuba in September 2017. Since then, much has changed, including the hand-painted signs that punctuate the journey from the airport to the city centre, which today do not celebrate the revolution so much as the 'Unidad y...

Mizuma Art Gallery is delighted to return to Art Basel Hong Kong for the fifth edition of the show, which features 242 galleries from 34 nations and territories, as well as a new sector, Kabinett. Mizuma Art Gallery is honoured to be exhibiting in the Galleries sector with a diverse and stimulating selection of work by artists from Japan, Indonesia, China and Singapore, working across the media of painting, sculpture, photography and installation.
A central axis of our presentation features abstract painting by celebrated artists AIDA Makoto, YAMAGUCHI Akira, O JUN and HORI Kosai. Complementing their work shall be two large-scale works of figurative painting, by AMANO Yoshitaka (whose career has exerted a formative influence on the development of visual design, anime and manga throughout Japan and beyond over the course of the second half of the 21st century), and OKAMOTO Ellie, whose astonishingly intricate paintings addressing questions of the role of local lore and traditional noh theatre in shaping contemporary society have won high acclaim even as Okamoto was still completing her PhD. studies at Tokyo University of the Arts.
Finally, our booth showcases artists working at the forefront of innovation in visual expression in terms of interpolating their work with influences from contemporary cultural expression and pop culture symbolism. Chinese artist/musician DU Kun’s (b. 1982) oil paintings recall detailed classical Song Dynasty landscapes melded with figures from Chinese rock music. Du describes his exploration of contradictions as akin to contemporary China’s condition of navigating between traditional Buddhist or Confucian values and the impact of Western cultural influence. By contrast, the work of celebrated Indonesian artists’ duo indieguerillas navigates the intertextual relationships between visual art and pop culture, incorporating the classical Indonesia shadow puppetry theatre of wayang as well as the visual iconography of video games.
We look forward to welcoming Basel Hong Kong’s audiences to our presentation. For sales inquiries, please contact the gallery directly.
