About
Sponsored by The Japan Foundation in Tokyo, this exhibition features artists born between the late 50s and the early 60s who represent the cutting-edge in Japanese art from the 1990s.

These artists grew up during a period when Japan was achieving economic growth and during which the art of painting was "rediscovered". Their exploitation of American figurative painting, mixed with characteristics from comics and picture book illustrations, has created a new style in international painting.
