‘Antonio López’

BUNKAMURA THE MUSEUM

by Delilah Romasanta

Staff Writer

Spanish artist Antonio López is renowned for the tediously slow pace of his creative process, sometimes touching up works 10 years after starting them.

Some may be familiar with his unusual artistic method through Victor Erice’s 1992 documentary “The Quince Tree Sun,” which follows López’s obsession with depicting the same fruit tree every year. This pedantic attention to detail, paired with exceptional observation skills, have placed López among Spain’s top contemporary artists.

Included in this retrospective of his works are oil paintings, drawings and sculpture; April 27-June 16.

Bunkamura the Museum; (03) 5777-8600; 2-24-1 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; Shibuya Station, JR Yamanote Line. 10 a.m.-7 p.m. (Fri., Sat. till 9 p.m.) ¥1,400.
