This event has ended.

hpgrp Gallery New York presents Chopsticks, a four day long art and design exhibition by Tadaomi Shibuya and Satoko Go.

Chopsticks features the work of two Japanese painters presenting a new series of works alongside everyday objects that Shibuya and Go have each infused with their unique creative styles. This body of work showcases their contrasting styles of painting; where Shibuya typically features reconstructed images using straight lines and faces inspired by various motifs, Go employs expressive lines to recreate plants, animals and spaces. This is reflected in their new design wares, including a series of toothbrushes and die-cut decorative lace tape. Shibuya and Go will be live painting at the gallery during the exhibition.

Satoko Go is an illustrator and graphic artist who was born in Japan in 1976. She started drawing in her 30’s and has been an active artist since 2012. Geometric patterns and designs feature in many of her works where she creates plants, animals and spaces through expressive lines. Throughout her career she has designed book and album covers, logos, posters, and industrial design. Her various art projects have ranged from painting to body art and commercial collaborations. As a commercial artist, Satoko was recently Art Director of the Japanese beauty firm Shu Uemura

Tadaomi was born in Yokohama, Japan in 1973. He is best known for reconstructing images using straight lines and portraits inspired by a broad range of motifs. His unique style has led him to numerous projects including Givenchy’s emblem design in 2008, and art direction of Nike’s Air Jordan CP3 IV in 2011, and, in 2012, an illustration of Robert Griffin III that was featured in a special edition of the Washington Post. Shibuya continued his work on the Jordan brand in 2014, and designing a t-shirt commemorating Jordan’s 1988 Slam Dunk Contest win. His recent works include tour merchandise designs for acts such as Rhymestar and Fire Ball, as well as cover artwork for the Japanese punk band Anarchy’s major debut album. Shibuya introduced his works in exhibitions at hpgrp Gallery Tokyo and WeSC GALLERY PARIS in 2009, and has participated in group exhibitions in London, New York, Los Angeles, Taipei and Bangkok.
