Promising artists keep emerging to bring their own unique voice that resonates not only locally but also globally. One such gallery that supports and nurtures these young talents is Gallery UG, founded in 2001 in Ginza, Tokyo (but since 2011 had move to the more art gallery-friendly Nihombashi Bakurocho area). For Bazaar Art Jakarta 2016, they will fly in four young talents known for their affinity to the limitless characteristics of nature and loving familiarity with the exquisiteness of Japanese art. Kunihiko Nohoro will bring his whimsical lifelike sculptures that intend to capture the ever-changing shape of time and space. Meanwhile Misako Maegaki, with her Nekodomo sculpture series, yearns to dissolve the lines between human and the natural surroundings in which he/she lives in. The art of painting is represented by two painters who are in tune with their rich heritage, namely Takashi Onishi, who utilizes materials normally used for traditional paintings (mineral pigments, gold and silver foils); and Gekko Numata, who is particularly inspired by the nihon-ga style of Japanese paintings as he brushed his favorite objects.
