Kato Izumi - Like A Rolling Snowball

Publisher Seigensha

ISBN 9784861527470

Idea Code 20040

Izumi Kato began his career as a painter in the mid-1990s, and during the 2000s expanded the range of his expression to include wooden sculptures, which he continues to produce today. This catalogue is published on the occasion of an eponymous exhibition of over 200 works by Kato at the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, providing an extensive overview of his oeuvre. Kato is recognised for grotesque, human-like forms reminiscent of the “primitivism” embraced by artists such as Picasso. With his malformed yet beautiful representations, some even say Kato is the latest successor to Picasso’s legacy. The book includes essays and an interview with the artist.
