Artist introduction

Koji Takuma
Traditional craftsman of Koshu crystal precious stone work. As a precious stone sculptor, he combines a modern sensibility with traditional techniques passed down through the ages, and is constantly releasing new works that take advantage of the characteristics of stones and combine them with metal processing.

Canna Oshiro
After working as a decoration and prop assistant for commercial films, he studied under Yukio Shimizu, a first-class gemstone polisher, and created loose pieces using Kofu's traditional technique of hand polishing. Specializing in the dynamic and random expressions that can only be achieved by the human hand, the facets created by a unique rhythm bring out the natural expression of the stone, different from traditional regular cuts.

kayo saito
After graduating from the Royal College of Art, a national art university in London, he is a Japanese designer based in the UK who has won various awards. Inspired by the vitality and transience of natural and organic materials, he creates sculptural works that exude a unique delicacy.

More than 100 galleries and art dealers from more than 22 cities in Japan and overseas will be participating in this three-day event where you can get a glimpse of the world's art scene. MIN GALLERY will be exhibiting at the B1F Lobby Gallery "Booth C011", which is free to visit, so please feel free to stop by.
