The works by RYUHOW full of free and unrestrained expression are constantly changing and appealing to the audience energetically. Her works are full of energy for trying to live her present life to the full and can never be ignored.
Since early childhood RYUHOW has been dedicated to drawing and painting pictures, making much of her own way of viewing the world. By making the best of any complicated situations, she has been pushing forward challengingly to create one work after another, without forgetting to analyze and evaluate her works at he same time. RYUHOW reads varying feelings into her familiar people, who will have various experiences in each stage of growing, such as birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and aging. She thinks those phases of growing to be as a matter of course but the most wonderful. It is such varying feelings in accordance with their growth that she depicts as paintings. She says, “I‘ve just depicted straight what I’ve felt in the process of my familiar people and myself being evolved by times, environments, and aging. People have various feelings like anger, sadness, and happiness and they can feel those by using five senses. I’ve only drawn and painted pictures under the transitional times and society and my works have naturally diversified. I believe what I have to draw through a variety of my experiences is those feelings that may change in the transition of history and society.”
Such a strong passion of RYUHOW, which is based on love, will lead to the continuous creation of more new works in the future.

We are pleased to announce that ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 will be held over in the coming cherry blossom season, and that for the second consecutive year we welcome Deutsche Bank Group as the Main Sponsor. The fair will present artworks from a range of genres and periods, including antiques, crafts, nihonga, modern art and the latest contemporary art as always, and will feature a total of the more than 160 participating galleries and cooperating partners from Japan and overseas.
This year, ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 is expanding our venue, taking up all of the Tokyo International Forum Exhibition Hall aiming for further development with fascinating programs and related-events. Launched in 2011 as an experimental exhibition, “Artistic Practices” becomes a special section this year retracing Japanese art history with high-quality works ranging from antiques to contemporary art and projects.
Having our international vision of “Tokyo as a city within Asia”, we proudly launch “Discover Asia” – a new section where prominent galleries from Asian major cities, such as Seoul, Taipei, and Beijing, participate at ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 along with museums and Japanese galleries that have been receiving an international acclaim.
n addition, as the “PROJECTS” section is setting up within the Exhibition Hall this year, the section not only features the usual participations of international young galleries, but has a new section, “project in PROJECTS”, which dynamically presents the large-scale works of the latest Asia-Pacific art going beyond the confines of a regular booth.
Through the course of the event, ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 hosts many original programs and new related-events in collaboration with the other creative industries, such as “food” and “fashion”.
It is our hope that all of you enjoy a unique experience to discover the joys of “purchasing art”.
