Artist Talk: Noritake Kinashi

19 June 2018, London

In June 2018, the work of anglophile and polymath Noritake Kinashi will be appearing in a new exhibition, introducing the latest phase of his ongoing creative project ‘REACH OUT’. Also an actor, musician and comedian, Kinashi will showcase a series of paintings created as a result of his unique observational point of view, with his dynamic and non-conformist, yet ever-evolving brush style.


To celebrate his first show in the UK, Kinashi, in conversation with Dr Lena Fritsch, a specialist in 20th and 21st century Japanese art and photography, will discuss how he draws inspiration from everyday life, and how his art activities influence his acting and comedy performance, and vice versa.


Noritake Kinashi's first solo exhibition in London '-moment-' will run at Protein, 31 New Inn Yard, Shoreditch, EC2A 3EY from 21st to 24th June, 11:00-19:00 (until 17:00 on the 24th).
