Rio, Tokyo, Paris: Oscar Oiwa, Brazilian artist of Japanese origin, draws from these three Olympic cities to which he is personally bound, a matter to question the world of today, inviting us to dive into his half-realistic mid-fantasy universe, where sometimes point humor and nostalgia.
The catalogue brings together drawings and paintings dedicated to these three Olympic host cities, specially created by Oscar Oiwa. It also gives two artists residing in Paris, Makiko Tanaka who is Japanese and Camille Fontaine who is French, the opportunity of expressing themselves on the same theme. The works of these artists evoke the three most recent great Olympic metropolises in a very personal way.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at
Maison de la Culture du Japon, Paris, from September to December 2019.
Oscar Oiwa is a Japanese artist born in 1965 in São Paulo (Brazil).
