Genie Ink “VISTA & GLASSHEART”
We will be holding an exhibition of risographs and illustrations by illustrator Genie Ink. 41 risographs and the works included in the art book “Glass Heart” published this year will be exhibited all at once.
At the exhibition venue, the risograph process and risograph color charts will be on display, as well as advice on creating risograph images and lithography samples.
Genie Ink’s A5 size risograph series started during the pandemic.
The world contained in a small frame expresses her distant memories and the scenery left in the back of her mind in gentle pastel colors and vivid neon colors, like a story.
This print is made with four layers of ink using a printing method called risograph, and the risographs featured here were created in Toronto, Tokyo, and Los Angeles.
For the past three years, Jeannie has continued to challenge himself every day to create illustrations with a story-telling quality through lithographic printing. This series, now in its fourth year, has already produced over 30 works.
The body is something that moves, evolves, and mutates. This is a story about a girl with mysterious powers, with the theme of reincarnation.
This series, which started in 2020, depicts “girlhood” and “hope” using ink and digital painting. The Glassheart series was completed in collaboration with Knuckles & Notch, a lithography studio in Singapore.
The 15 works, created using a complex process such as using six colors of bright neon litho ink, will be published as a limited edition lithograph art book and will debut at the Singapore Art Book Fair 2023.
You can also see it on Genie’s book tour, which started this summer.

Risa Niwano “Earthlings”
October 13th (Thur.) ~ October 23rd (Mon)
Before skin color or ideology, we are Earthlings, right? The driving force behind my creations is my dismay at the various things happening in the world and everyday life. It’s shockingly adorable. Please accept my own interpretations of the works I drew with this feeling in mind.

<Message from the artist>
“I create art using a variety of materials, mainly paintings.The images I create express the intuitive and beautiful emotions I get from the world of music and dreams.Emotions that cannot be seen by others. My art embodies this, transcending physical reality and representing the core of my reality and essence.”
Born in Japan in 2001, lives in New York. She is a student at Pratt Institute of Art.
She is studying 3D animation. Among her many hobbies, one thing that remains consistent is listening to music and learning various methods to create works.
“I make art in various mediums, but mainly painting. The imagery in my mind has always been heavily intertwined with the world of music and dreams. I experience visceral and beautiful emotions through these dreams and music. It’s hard to find words to describe this state, so my art expresses these real experiences. The places I try to reflect are a core part of my reality and identity that exists beyond physical reality.”
Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, in 2001. Currently a student at Pratt Institute of Art in New York City. Her two most consistent hobbies are listening to music and learning new art-making skills.
August 25th (Thu) ~ September 4th (Mon)
I have always admired the “spirit of steel”. I wish her heart was as hard as iron, repelling all attacks and shining with a dull glare. However, in reality, this is not the case; it is so soft that it seems like it could burst at any moment. I would like them to at least provide me with armor. I want to harden the outside firmly. With this in mind, we are exhibiting works with the theme of knights in armor.
Born in Osaka in 1997, lives in Tokyo. He produces illustrations, figures, etc. with the theme of “confronting different cultures.” His client work includes goods design and book illustrations.
Sometimes I wish I had a heart as strong as steel, able to withstand any blow and shining with unwavering radiance. That isn’t my case, of course. My soul is too delicate and vulnerable, and it doesn’t take much to start falling apart. It would be great if the government considered providing armor subsidies. This exhibition, “Nito,” reflects on the longing for increased protection, inspired by the idea of knights in shining armor.
Born in Osaka in 1997, and now based in Tokyo. NOY’s art revolves around “Confronting Different Cultures,” which influences his work in various mediums such as illustrations and figures. He has worked with clients for goods design and book illustrations.
“What’s Done is Done” BON-NOU Exhibition
This exhibition showcases a collection of three-dimensional ceramic works titled “Object.” Created in 2021, each piece shares the same name and explores the concept of existing as an object.
Reducing a familiar concept or image to its basic form can exist indefinitely as an object. Although it is just a thing, humans tend to develop an emotional attachment to objects and cherish them dearly. When an object is damaged, even if it can be fixed, there will always be a part of it that is lost forever.
BON-NOU, the artist behind this exhibit, aims to provoke thought about this sense of loss and where it leads. Born in 1990 and based in Tokyo, BON-NOU has been actively creating since 2018. While his methods of expression have evolved from photography to illustration, painting, and sculpture, his work always serves as a “tool for thinking” about the end of the world.
