Introducing the exhibition
This is the 12th exhibition of works submitted for this contemporary painting competition. As a "gateway to success" for new and emerging artists, regardless of age or affiliation, this exhibition features the works selected from pieces submitted by artists across Japan. Enjoy these works that capture the sensibilities of the times through various techniques and motifs. These are works of true power, which can potentially become internationally recognized works of art in the future. An audience award will also be presented based on votes submitted by exhibition visitors.
