The 18th Izukogen Art Festival

Izukogen Art Festival, which is held in May of each year, marks its 18th anniversary this year.

This time, HIRO GALLERY IZUKOGEN holds a woodprint exhibition of Yasuhiko Kida, whose exhibition was also held at Shiodome Museum of Panasonic Electric Works, Ltd. recently.

Famous sceneries and temples in archetypal image of Japan are vividly expressed in his works from an adventurous point of view and color.

His works are widely known for the package illustrations of a well-known bath agent series, “Tabinoyado.”

From the works by Yasuhiko Kida, 22 woodprints of the scenes of spa towns throughout Japan are exhibited.

We hope you will come enjoy the exhibition.
