October 18th, 2007 was the opening reception to Mr. Kawakita’s painting exhibition “Mu- On Space and Nothingness.” He has been an architect for many years, but has found a deep connection with architecture and painting. Most of his artwork comprises of spheres in the colors of black and white.
As shown above in his portfolio, his architecture includes very modern design and simple straight lines. It was interesting to see the contrast of spheres in his paintings and lines in his structures.? It was impressive to see in his exhibition the perfect circles he created by thick brushes.
