Artists at the forefront of Japanese Pop art
This is our Forth exhibition in the Pop Japan series. On first appearance, it may seem like a very simplistic title, but each of the artworks featured here really is on the cutting edge of Japanese art. Full of impact and new ideas, there is no denying that as our Pop Japan! series continues, it has grabbed the attention of collectors all over the world, and they are quickly snapping up these artworks. It's now entering the last quarter of 2013 so keep watching for the new artworks and I am sure you will find something that you are interested in.
The concept behind this particular exhibition is “Pop and Catchy”, and to quote the expression of one of the artists themselves, these really are works with a “playful heart”.
cuisine, art requires that essential “flavour” that is unique to its artist,
that characteristic which is completely individual. We are confident that with
this exhibition, ever more than before, we have gathered together the most
exciting illustrators and artists working in Japan, creating new artistic trend
straight from Sydney.Things to suit all tastes!
Along with artworks, a number of products featuring characters by each of the artists are available. Only just over three months to go so take or opportunity now before it is too late.
2014 will see Vol 5! which will be another exciting year. So catch Vol 4! while you can and watch this space for news about 2014.

So the end of the world didn't happen!!
We all made it to 2013.
Me & Art anticipated that and made big plans for a new look and feel for 2013.
I suppose you could say our new theme is - "if it's in here it's art". including the viewers and customers. The gallery is now an interactive art space where everyone adds their own little bit to the experience. Even that person who walks in front of your view as you are studying the form of the artwork.
Its an exciting new start and I hope you will come along and try it out.

The exhibition is titled “Color Code”. It normally means a system with which varied colors communicate information attached to them. Through multiple color expressions, I try to think about what each color communicates and how thy complement each other. I create artworks that have similar patterns on them but are painted with different "color codes". Each work has a code that like DNA defines the organism that is the artwork. Even though the patterns are similar, they convey completely different color codes and express very different thing. They have a life of their own. In our life, we sometimes find that first impressions can sometimes be fleeting and we soon see something very different, but on reflection the different views are virtually the same, it's just how we react that make them seem different. In this sometimes apathetic world, I think it is important to reach above the passive dogma and recognize both commonality and diversity. You might find variations in the same patterns used in my works. Or, you might find commonality among the works with different colors. These diametrically opposite aspects help us stimulate and understand our own thoughts and feelings. I am very pleased if I can share some of my thoughts with you when I create my art works. I do not always know how each work will end up, the easel and myself go on a journey, an adventure together. What I do control (I think) and focus on is a concept of commonality that explores the environment we live in and the wonderful similarities and contradictions of the world we all share. There is no wrong or right in the interpretation of my art. They mean something different to each person, just the same as they mean something different to me. Sometimes it is one thing and sometimes it is another. So, please enjoy them in your own way.
Thank you, Tetsuo Iida
Opening party – 26th Nov 6pm to 8pm
Come and Join us and meet Tetsuo
