Atsushi Kaga at the Butler Gallery


I'm a big fan of Atsushi Kagas work and if you happen to be in Kilkenny over the next while I seriously recommend you take the time to pop in to the Butler Gallery and have a look at his exhibition, fabulously titled

"I want to give love to socially neglected parts of you, that’s my mission."

The Exhibition is divided up into four sections,
A room of his smaller drawings, many of which are hilarious.
A room with 3 huge drawings including the piece "I want to give love to socially neglected parts of you, that’s my mission." which I would Kill to have in the foyer of my office (if I had a foyer)
A room with his recent oil paintings which mostly feature his usual protaganist Bunny, and are a combination of Bottecelli meets Caravaggio.

And a room with an installation that is so cool it's heartbreaking to think it will be painted over when the exhibition is finished, so I took some photos, there are 8 TV's in total and I WANT ONE!!!!
