Lot description
""Untitled no. 2" (2006) is a dynamic example of the Neo-Pop portraits by Contemporary Japanese artist, Koichi Enomoto (Japan, b. 1977). The artist covers every inch of the canvas with a fantasy-based depiction of the portrait of a young woman with the negative space surrounding her filled with colors and patterns. All detail is inspired by traditional Japanese fabrics, as well as modern-day anime, cartoons and video games. Leaving no inch of the canvas untouched, Enomoto even paints the edges that border the canvas in a vivd, op-art pattern. This work is new to the secondary market, measuring 27.50 x 21.75 x 2.40 inches unframed (70 x 55.20 x 6.10 cm) and in perfect condition.

Koichi Enomoto graduated from Japan’s Kanazawa College of Art with an M.A. in 2002 and made his debut exhibition at Hiromi Yoshii Gallery Tokyo in 2004 at the group exhibition “After the Reality” curated by Kentaro Ichihara. A solo show at Yoshii soon followed and his work has since been in select exhibitions in Europe and the U.S. Enomoto’s U.S. debut was at the Stray Show 2004 and his work was featured at the 2005 LISTE Art Fair, Basel, Switzerland. His work was the subject of a two-person exhibition "After the Reality" at Deitch Projects, NY and in the three person show "The Girls of Summer" at Monique Meloche, Chicago, US and in 2008: "Viva Lolita", curated by James Putnam, at Maddox Arts, London. Select Solo Shows include 2009: Grieder Contemporary, Zürich, Switzerland; and 2007: "surrogate picture", at Hiromi Yoshii Gallery, Tokyo.
