Born in 1965, Niigata. Master of Fine Arts from the Tokyo University of the Arts completed in 1991. Not only a painter, his artistic expression also includes photography, sculpture, performance, installation, novels, manga and urbanism. Well versed into history and subcultures, his influence reaches far beyond the limits of the art world to all kind of creative people. Beside his regular solo exhibitions at Mizuma Art Gallery he also works both in Japan and internationally. Recently, he took part in "The 17th Sydney Biennale: THE BEAUTY OF DISTANCE: Songs of Survival in a Precarious Age" (Sydney, 2010), participated in the group exhibition "Bye Bye Kitty!!! -Between Heaven and Hell in Contemporary Japanese Art"（Japan Society, NY, 2011), and had a solo show "Diena ir naktis (Day & Night)" (Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius, 2011).
Born in Delhi（India）, 1970. RADHIKA JHA performs a sensuous and lyrical style of Odissi, the temple dance of Orissa. Her style, rarely seen in public fora, is that of the late Guru Surendranath Jena. While all the different schools of Odissi draw inspiration from Orissa temple sculptures, Guru Jena's choreography departs from the better known schools of Odissi in turning well-known sculptural poses into movements instead of making them the end points of movements. A critically acclaimed dancer, Radhika performs regularly in India, Japan, USA and Europe. In 2006 she was made an empanelled artist by the ICCR (Indian Council of Cultural Relations).
