It is in the shadows

Hello South Korea.
I'm happy to announce that I'm going to have my exhibition at Labile Coffee in Jeju Island in November.
I hope this exhibition will be a good first step in South Korea.

Hirofumi Abe
is a Japanese painter/graphic designer and lives and works in Berlin, Germany. He draws lines and faces its vestige of memories. He repeats it everyday.


“In the mansion called literature I would have the eaves deep and the walls dark, I would push back into the shadows the things that come forward too clearly, I would strip away the useless decoration. I do not ask that this be done everywhere, but perhaps we may be allowed at least one mansion where we can turn off the electric lights and see what it is like without them.”
— Junichiro Tanizaki “In Praise of Shadows”

韓国チェジュ島の Labile Coffee で11月に展示を開催することになりました。自分が日々描き連ねたものが様々な文化の中で展示できることを嬉しく思います。日本からも是非遊びに行ってみてください。
