Atsushi Kaga

clipped from

A few artists jumped out at me this weekend at Art Basel down in Miami — one of them I had to mention was Atsushi Kaga. Born in Japan, and schooled at the National College of Art in Dublin (weird, right?), Kaga’s work is devilishly intriguing. He had about 15 or 20 pieces, represented by Mother’s Tankstation (a small Irish gallery) available for sale — and into the third day as I was deliberating buying one, a collector-like looking woman walked in and bought the entire show of oil and acrylics with the snap of her fingers, as well as a few drawings. I’d keep your eyes peeled for more of Kaga’s work in the near future; my guess is he’s going to come onto the scene in a big way, and very soon. One more picture after the jump…
