CV


KADOTA


ARTIST

Born in 1980 in Shizuoka, Japan and currently based in Saitama prefecture. Presently represented by M Gallery (Tochigi) and TEZUKAYAMA GALLERY (Osaka). Based on my own sense of a struggle between affirmation and denial, I express my versatility and potential through the colors and brushstrokes of my paintings. My style is highly valued, and in 2019, I held a solo exhibition at the Lincoln Center in New York in conjunction with the Junior Associates of the MoMA, which was praised by Cy Twombly's nephew, Cody Franchetti. My work was also collected by the Sezon Museum of Modern Art. I established my company Kadota art LLC for expand art possibility in 2022.
