Kyohei Sakaguchi opens "museum" and releases a new art book "Water"



Kyohei Sakaguchi, an artist who contributes wonderful illustrations and essays to every issue of Subsequence, has opened a private art gallery called “museum” in Kumamoto City, where he is based.

The Hayano Building, where the museum is located, was completed in 1924 (registered as tangible cultural property). About 40 pieces of his recent works are on display in this beautiful modern architectural space, and visitors can encounter his works at any time.

His new pastel book, “Water” (published by Sayu-sha) is scheduled to be released in October. The sky, fields, and cats …… The momentary “scenes” that Mr Sakaguchi captures in his daily life are filled with serenity, intimacy, and a hint of sadness. 

2nd Floor, Hayano Building, 45 Renpei-cho, Chuo-ku, Kumamoto City, Kumamoto Prefecture
Open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in September.
