23rd Q Ei Exhibition

May 17 Fri. - June 1 Sat. 2013

Hideo SUGITA, a youth aged 24, moved to Tokyo in 1936 with his photo-dessin, which were rated highly by artists Sadajiro KUBO, Saburo HASEGAWA and Usaburo TOYAMA and made debut as Q Ei.
He produced many photo-dessins and collages, attracting attention as an avant-garde painter. Q Ei continued to produce many photo-dessin works in steady style, but on the other hand, his oil painting begun from abstract expression, moved to representational painting and returned to abstract painting after the war. His dynamic transition of painting ended with marvelous stippling paintings, which he worked on until his death at young, at the age of 48.

Since the 1st exhibition in 1996, this is our 23rd exhibition featuring Q Ei.

In this exhibition, we are displaying around 30 works of oil paintings, water colors, photo-dessin and photo-dessin stencils, centered with a stipple oil painting master piece "Woods".
