TOSHIYUKI KAJIOKA 梶岡俊幸


1978   
Born in Tokyo, Japan

Lives and works in Shiga, Japan


Toshiyuki Kajioka  (b. 1978 in Tokyo, Japan) has stoically painted the same subject for twenty years: the surface of a flowing river. Working in sumi ink and graphite pencil, he explores the transcendental wildness and tranquility of watery depths. Kajioka brings new works to the booth in connection with his two-artist show with Kengo Takahashi opening September 8th at SEIZAN Gallery New York.
