Review: Holly Black at Elephant Magazine included Tenki Hiramatsu in July edition of ‘Artists to watch – Elephant’s Pick of July’s Essential Artists’.

Holly Black, Managing Editor at Elephant Magazine, has included Tenki Hiramatsu in the July edition of ‘Artists to watch – Elephant’s Pick of July’s Essential Artists’ (see details here).
‘There is something jovial about Tenki Hiramatsu’s work. The Japanese artist, who lives and works in Karlsruhe, Germany, paints mysterious works that seems to have one foot in the legacy of German Expressionism, and the other in the cartoon world—is that Snoopy, the Cat in the Hat, or a strange anthropomorphic cake slice peeking from the canvas? While uncanny, his paintings escape any inherent sense of the sinister, and instead invite inquisitive minds and multiple questions. In his latest exhibition at Claas Reiss in London, titledGood Con Man, he considers the ultimate con to be based on an “ability to construct a convincing illusion without being demystified.” It seems to be something he excels at.
