In the library, we have now the pleasure of having the first student exhibition ever. It’s Riku Nogami who is exhibiting her drawings. Yesterday we had a vernissage and there were many visitors and even Riku’s family had the opportunity to attend.
Riku comes from Osaka, Japan, and has been painting since she was 5 years old, but this is her first public exhibition.
Riku’s drawings are made in different techniques (pencil, copic marker, ink) and inspired by Japanese manga and literary classics. Vibrant and nuanced drawings are mixed with more narrative paintings in bright colors. Among Riku’s pictures there are portraits of Bette Davis and Audrey Hepburn, there is a drawing inspired by Michael Jackson’s song ‘Man in the Mirror’, and another one inspired by a thought experiment: Erwin Schrödinger’s cat. One can also guess that hands have a special significance for Riku, because a hand recurs in several paintings. Despite her young age, Riku has already found a very special, own and amazing style!
The exhibition was initiated and organized by Rikus teacher Adriana Koscianska. It lasts between 3-24: May. Welcome to see it!
