Seiji Chokai Exhibition

Art Free

A pioneer of postwar Western-style painting in Japan, Seiji Chokai (1902-1972) is a particularly significant artist for Ginza's Tokyo Gallery: the Fauvist-influenced landscape painter's 1951 solo show was the gallery's first-ever exhibition. Famed for incorporating sand and pebbles into his works, Chokai went to great lengths to express the natural beauty of his homeland. As the Hiratsuka-born artist has largely been forgotten internationally, this retrospective – held at Tokyo Gallery, where else – should make for an excellent opportunity to reacquaint yourself with his work.
