Sugiyama's lithographs are a wonderfully fresh reinterpretation of the traditional Japanese Hanga prints, with a subject matter far from the traditional. His lithographs include abstract colorful pieces as well as human skulls and imagined modern-day tribe portraits (pictured). Sugiyama works mainly as a fine artist, but his work is also featured on several CD covers and in commercials.
The exhibition will also feature an limited edition CD by DJ Towa Tei
and one or two art installations.
