Celebrating 40 years of Work and Masterpieces

To celebrate his 40 year long carrer, Toru Iwaya will have an exhibition at the prestigious Yoseido Gallery located at the Tokyo's Ginza district.

The exhibition will feature exclusively the Noh Mask series, a unique collection of Mezzotints Toru Iwaya has developed over his long career.
Mezzotint is known for the luxurious quality of its tones: first, because an evenly, finely roughened surface holds a lot of ink, allowing deep solid colors to be printed; secondly because the process of smoothing the texture with burnisher and scraper allows fine gradations in tone to be developed.

Toru's collection of the 'Noh mask series' consist of over 30 works (20 out of 30 are large-sized). You cannot find this anywhere else in the world.
The opening party will be on November 29th from 4:30pm until 6:30pm

Toru will introduce his artwork and you will have a chance to talk directly with the artist. Toru will be available to answer any question you may have and to explain his work and his technique.

Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
Entrance is free of charge, no reservation is necessary.
