Last week, Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery in Luxembourg opened its door to their third solo show from Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed) featuring a new series of paintings and sculpture. Entitled No Place Like Home, the exhibition continues the Brooklyn-based artist’s exploration of identity, a reflection of an upbringing that included influences from diverse cultures.

Last week in Luxembourg, Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed) presented new works entitled Somewhere Here at Zidoun-Bossuyt Galley. The Japanese artist’s new solo included a series of vibrant new paintings as well as steel sculptures created in monochromatic gold and silver. The New York-based Matsuyama’s characters were both rendered against complex “deco-florative” patterns in irregularly shaped canvases set in striking contrast against the white walls as well as were seen in a more minimalistic outline in sculptural form both inside and outside the gallery space. Take a look at more installation photos below… Discuss Matzu here.
Tomorrow night (November 18th) in Luxembourg at Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery, Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed) will be unveiling a selection of new paintings and a series of steel sculptures rendered in monochromatic gold and silver. Entitled Somewhere Here, the solo from the Brooklyn-based artist features complex compositions of expressionless figures seen against “Deco-florative” patterns.

The show also contains several shaped paintings, which take […]
Last month, Jeff Soto (interviewed) along his friend and fellow artist Maxx242 headed to Luxembourg for the Goodbye Monopol 2 event. Monopol was a much loved market chain that closed down a few years ago so organizers invited artists (some others were all ten of The Weird Crew, The London Police, Eyes-B, and Mr. X) to paint the old headquarters. Take a look below at some of the indoor and outdoor murals collaborated on as well as worked on separately. Discuss Jeff Soto here.
AM recently stopped by the new studio space of Tomokazu “Matsu” Matsuyama (interviewed). The Brooklyn-based artist was busy getting ready for his solo exhibition at Luxembourg’s Zidoun & Bossuyt that opened yesterday. It was great to see Matsu focusing more on larger paintings and also the return of his abstract “sundance” style that we’ve come to love. The exhibition runs from October 3rd until November 9th, so stop by if you’re in the area. Discuss Matsu here.
