MASATAKA CONTEMPORARY was launched in January 2013. Our mission is to introduce and encourage emerging talents that we felt in love with. We explore artists and their work across various media that meet our two criteria; creativity and independence.

Open : From Tue. to Sat. , 11am to 7pm (Close on Sun., Mon., and national holidays)
Opening Reception : May 7 (Sat) 5pm ~ 7pm
Human beings are maintained by cities, and cities are let “alive” by human beings.
I really feel that chain forms a huge enigma between device and life-form and its wriggle.
What are human beings?
The answer might be in a “Misc. landscape” with garbage.
Thinking about something like that, I simply pick up lying paintbrushes.
Finally, we are going to hold the long-awaited solo exhibition of Kota Omoto.
How many years pass by since I was so pleased with his works and his personality?
I am very pleased that we both are at length ready to hold the show.
His consistent message is ”How to live true as human beings”.
Hope you would be shocked and overwhelmed to his expressive power.
