Ai Ohkawara: Silence looking forWarmth

Shinjuku Takashimaya Art Gallery 

5-24-2, Sendagaya, Shibuya Ku, Tokyo, Japan

Hours : 10:30 am -7:30 pm (Last day closing at 4pm)

Shinjuku Takashimaya Art Gallery proudly presents a solo exhibition of new works by internationally exhibited contemporary Artist, Ai Ohkawara.

Does the factual truly exist? Can justice be defined when the spectrum of human perspective is so vast? 

Ohkawara’s mixed media works reveal the inner darknesses and anxieties inherent in the contemporary human experience. Through Painting, Drawing and Collage these fascinating works explore regions of thought often hidden from our conscious mind. Layered and simultaneous, Ohkawara’s works are dense in their union of the deeply intellectual and intensely emotional.

Throughout her childhood, Ohkawara’s parents taught the importance of peace by exposing her to images of victims and the devastating scenes of war. Through this exposure an examination of the human condition began. Ohkawara continues to be driven to explore both the darker side of our humanity and the sense of suffocation that stems from social oppression.

Ohkawara believes that obtaining a multifaceted view is the key to solving bias perceptions. Through her art, she strives to illuminate the challenges we endure in our attempts to break free of social constraints; the risks in having a singular perspective; and the internal struggle of life itself.

Shinjyuku Takashimaya Art Gallery, Tokyo specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture. The gallery represents an international roster of artists working in a variety of media and a wide range of genres.

Ai Ohkawara was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1979. She studied at Musashino Art University  in Tokyo. She received her Bachelors Degree in Japanese Art in 2002 and her Masters Degree in Japanese Art in 2004. 

She currently lives in Tokyo, Japan. Since her first solo exhibition in Ginza in 2003, she has been featured in numerous art magazines, TV shows, movies, and various other formats. Since 2003, she has been part of numerous solo and group exhibitions across Japan. 

Beginning in 2007, she expanded her artistic reach to multiple international avenues, including Taiwan, China, United States, Singapore, Malaysia, Middle East and Europe. 


She has an international following, having sold her work across Europe, Asia, and North America. Her art is regularly part of various exhibitions throughout Japan.
