Masanobu Sakakibara, who was born in the Eighties in Hokkaido, is an artist of his generation. His paintings are inspired by video game imagery from his childhood; now these games are known as retro. In his solo exhibition at Hiromart Gallery, you will see knights, dragons and chimeras dance across his canvases. His bold, rich application of paints gives his pictures an uncanny historical feel.
