Kuroudo Tsuji Metal Art – Sorauma

Posted in National Art Center by tokyobling on March 2, 2014

It is that time of the year again, the joint graduation exhibition of five largest art universities in Tokyo: Joshibi, Zokei, Gakugei, Musabi and Tamabi (to use their popular nicknames). The sculpture section, which is always my favorite was a little weak this year but a few really good works of art made up for it all. My favorite from this year might be the Sorauma, a horse sculpture in metal and plastic expertly constructed by Kuroudo Tsuji (辻蔵人) from the Musashino Art University (武蔵野美術大学), which looked fantastic against the blue skies over the National Art Center in Tokyo’s Roppongi district. Don’t miss Mr Tsuji’s fantastic undergraduate graduation exhibit two years earlier, the scrap metal fossil that I blogged about here.

If you are in Tokyo, today is your last chance to see this massive exhibition of almost a thousand young artists displaying their best. The entrance is free and nobody minds if you take photos. This is probably the foremost art event in Tokyo!

    They are planning to go to the Tokyo Racecourse in the summer of this year.

      Thank you for checking out the blog, and thank you for your fantastic creations! Always great. I would love to see Sorauma and her daughter… Maybe it is time to finally visit the racecourse…?

      I wonder if you will provide a saddle? (^-^)
