Interview with Japanese Artist Hiroaki Kano at Art Stage Singapore 2014

At the art fair Art Stage Singapore 2014, Gallery Hirota Fine Art is participating with a solo show with works by the Japanese artist Hiroaki Kano. The works on display are works that are inspired by Japanese country lore and deal with the relationship between people and the weather. In this video, Hiroaki Kano talks about two of the artworks, a painting and an installation based on the weather box, invented by the father of author Robert Louis Stevenson.

Hiroaki Kano was born in Yamagata, Japan, in 1983. He graduated from Art specialized study course at Tsukuba University. "I create artwork depicting landscapes from actual places where I have collected data. I often reconfigure motifs that are connected with differing places and contexts; conceiving a world that has a certain sense of unrest in the air. I may be acting as a filter that reflects the real world, or perhaps I am simply rendering the fundamental madness and anxiety lurking in our everyday lives. I hope that my work is seen as a depiction of the common sensations that anyone can perceive in the world around them." (Hiroaki Kano)

Gallery Hirota Fine Art is based in Tokyo, Japan. The gallery was founded in 1969 and has its focus on Japanese painting.
