YOD Gallery

YOD Gallery was established in 2008 with a mission to present a new sense of value and expression to and from Japan. It has been supporting local art scenes and emerging artists with new media, including video, photography, installation and others. It represents works sparing no effort or time in expression, which comprise Japanese aesthetic beauty, with a substantial concept and important messages to out modern society behind itself. It also supports overseas artists to stay at our artist residency, providing opportunities for them to experience the unique environment in Osaka city where tradition and leading-edge technologies and culture coexist.

About exhibited works

YOD Gallery presents artworks by rising artists from Kansai and western Japan. These creators have mastered traditional Japanese craft, and are reinventing the boundaries of expression that are achievable with their chosen medium. Nobuyuki Ogawa grew up in a family of Kiyomizu Ware potters, and utilizes overglaze techniques which Kyoto is famous for, to create his works which combine tradition and progress, whereas Yoko Miki mainly uses black and white in her thoughtful pieces. Likewise ceramic artists Shigeki Minami, Manami Okaysu, and Rio Kawase are testing the barriers of expression achievable with porcelain. Malaya Koga’s gorgeous copper works also encompass traditional metalwork and patina, the latter of which is especially effective in giving the pieces a timeless appeal. Arata Higuchi uses traditional Japanese painting mediums, but his pointillist approach renders an internationally appealing expression for his pictures of colourful reptiles. Stitch Dog creates embroidery inspired by circuit boards, presenting a unique world with her craft.
