Lot Details

Playful, intuitive, earnest, and aesthetically unique, the paintings of young Japanese Contemporary female artist, Rei Sato (Japan, b. 1984) are defined by bold compositions and a fresh, young energy. "New Life" (2002) is a charming example of her child-like figurative paintings that draw influence from Japanese manga, Western Impressionism and abstract painting and underscores her iconic innovative use of bold color colors, painting in a manner that is highly individualistic and expressive. This panting measures 16.25 x 9.55 inches (41.2 x 24.5 cm), is in excellent condition, and is professionally framed in a shadow boxed to larger dimensions (listed dimensions for frame size are approximate).

Rei Sato works with a wide range of mediums including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and installation. In 2005, she graduated from Ochanomizu College of Fine Arts and Design. Thee years earlier, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami discovered Sato at the first GEISAI art fair in Japan. Since then she has been making extensive progress, participating in numerous group and solo exhibitions including Leha Coloriage at Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, Paris,; Tokyo Girls Bravo 2, NADiff, Tokyo,; Weather Report, Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderno, Spain; Kaikai Kiki Gallery, Tokyo; Lehmann Maupin Gallery, New York; and All Monsters Hold Secrets in Their Grasp, ART HK12, Hong Kong. In 2008, Sato published her photography book “SUN” and in 2010, she undertook the position of artistic director for the production of Sergei Prokofiev’s classic, Peter and the Wolf, for Works & Process at the Guggenheim Museum, New York. The artist currently lives and works in Taiwan and is formally represented by Lehmann Maupin Gallery, New York.
