Tomoo Gokita: The Great Circus
Coinciding with Tomoo Gokita's 2014 exhibition at Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art in Japan, this catalogue includes all exhibited works and some unpublished recent drawings and paintings. This volume is the first extensive compilation of Gokita's early and recent works.
Having shown his peculiar talent in the field of the illustration and given his great influences on various sub-cultures since the 1990s, Tomoo Gokita has continued to exhibit his large-scale tableaux both in Japan and in the international art world for more than a decade. This exhibition—his first solo show in a museum—featured about 90 works, including 11 new paintings, and large-scale works that were shown in Japan for the first time. The exhibition also included drawing series that have never been publicly exhibited anywhere before.
