Inherit Gallery will be hosting a solo exhibition of Hiro Horikoshi’s pen-and-ink artwork in Setagaya.

Inspired by the power of cities around the world, Horikoshi draws cityscapes using only pens, going straight in without relying on the comfort of sketches or rulers. For Hiro Horikoshi, drawing cities is a way to immerse himself in his own fictional world, unencumbered by anyone else.

Born in Tokyo’s Bunkyo-ku district in 1984, Horikoshi has been drawing cities ever since his days at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, where his drawing of the Domino Sugar Factory drew attention from designers and art professionals.
