Oscar Oiwa: Journey to the Light

Based in Tokyo and New York, Oscar Oiwa is a Nikkei Brazilian artist who reinterprets aerial and bird's-eye views of urban landscapes through detailed drawings and paintings. Exploring global themes of societal and environmental issues, he sources inspiration from photographs, prints and the internet to produce large-scale works that juxtapose reality and fantasy, nature versus manmade, and light with shadows.

A showcase of 60 of Oiwa's works, this exhibition includes "Wood," a 4.5-meter by 27-meter-long drawing, which took the artist two weeks to complete at the museum. (Yukari Tanaka)
