26.02.2020 - 14.06.2020

First solo exhibition in Japan by contemporary Scottish “painter’s painter”

Painter of romantic, but uncanny landscapes, Peter Doig (b. 1959) has been named one of the most important artists in the world today. Doig produces paintings that combine diverse imagery from the compositions and motifs of works by modern painters such as Gaugin, Van Gogh, Matisse and Munch, to scenes from films, advertising graphics, and the landscapes of places he has lived, such as Canada and Trinidad.

Our mystical fascination with Doig’s paintings may be attributed to the artist’s use of images seemingly seen somewhere, to present worlds we have most certainly never seen. Inviting viewers on a journey of the imagination through painting, Peter Doig this long-awaited first solo exhibition by Peter Doig in Japan, covers the artist’s career from early work to latest offerings.
