Coming in January - Pop Japan: An Exhibition by Sonoko Obuchi

Share

Category:

Sonoko Obuchi has been living in London for the last 16 years. During that time many things have happened. She studied, graduated, worked, got married, had children. She witnessed the 7/7 London bombings, the 2012 Olympics, the Brexit vote and, most significantly, the arrival of proper Tonkotsu Ramen noodle restaurants from her home town Hakata!

Given her Japanese background, her life established in London and the turmoil of recent times Sonoko finds herself in the grip of an identity crisis. You the viewer can join her on an emotional trip as she searches for an understanding of who she has become and what it means to live as a Japanese artist in this marvellous cosmopolitan city, London.

Pop means popular culture & Pop Art in general. But when Sonoko entitled her exhibition "Pop Japan", it felt like a bubble of Japanese-ness bursting and a new energy began pouring forth.

She wants to express this feeling through her speciality: Manga graphics, photography, 3D work and film.

Sonoko is very excited to show her latest collection in the Dugdale Centre, a cultural centre for the artistic community in Enfield and all London.
