Exhibition Opening: June 11(Sat.) 5PM
AG Gallery is pleased to announce new exhibition “PIKUNIKKU – A Taste of Japan” by Pinkpill Design is opening on June 15, 2022. This exhibition is a first solo exhibition of Pinkpill Design at AG Gallery which we have been anticipated to realize ever since we introduced their work in one of our past group exhibitions. In this PIKUNIKKU, you are invited to see Pinkpill Design’s latest silkscreen prints and some older original silkscreen prints, all of which carry some Japanese culture that the artists love. The title Piknikku (ピクニック) is a Japanese word of Picnic. The beautiful weather and the grass and flowers are back in New York City and it is the perfect season for some picnic. Please bring your friends and enjoy seeing Pinkpill’s artwork that came all the way from Czech Republic.
In their work, there are Japanese words, items, fashion, classic everyday foods (such as Onigiri), and traditional ideas (such as Kintsugi) depicted in their work. Please do not hesitate to ask our gallery staff about the meaning or the background of what you see in the exhibition. As a Japanese-run art gallery in New York City, we are always excited to see Japanese essence in new art. We enjoy and are passionate to be a place to exhibit such art from diverse artists to the diverse visitors at AG Gallery.
