ARTIST TALK: Join us for this unique opportunity to hear an Artist Talk by one of the most celebrated Nihonga artists, Chinami Nakajima. 
_______
Chinami Nakajima was born in Obuse in Nagano Prefecture. He is the third son of Kiyoshi Nakajima, who was also a Nihonga painter. During Nakajima's student years, he aimed to create a new style of Nihonga, breaking free from the existing traditional Nihonga style. His doubt and anger about the society later inspired him to create the series, "Portrait". This became his life work. 
His subject matter is vast, however, he is well known for his depictions of fresh flowers, such as cherry blossoms and peonies. His motto, "more real than real," is evident in his painted flowers, blooming proudly alive in the frame. 
In recent years, he completed curtains installed at the Shin Kabuki-Za Theater with the theme "Spring and Autumn." He also created paintings on sliding screen doors in Sakura room at Koyasan Kongōbu-ji. He was a professor at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts for 19 years and is currently a professor emeritus at the university.

________

Enjoy his unique perspective on the art of Nihonga, and view one of his masterpieces, a four-panel folding screen, titled “Spring Night, a Weeping Cherry Tree in Miharu” exhibited at Sato Sakura Gallery. 
Space is limited and RSVP is recommended. (Link in bio) #nihonga #chinaminakajima #japanesepainting #artist #artistpresent #artisttalk #conversation #nihongaartist

“I’ve spent the last 30 years chasing after solitary old cherry trees to draw. There have been twigs that have grown into big branches where new flowers bloom and twigs that have withered and died. I’m  always impressed by the vitality that beautiful flowers bloom with every year as they change the shape of the tree little by little. “ As à part of RYO DATE and thé collection of Sato Sakura museum, “The Jindai Cherry Tree in Yamataka” is on view until June 16th.
