Sato Naoki


Sato Naoki began to draw familiar vegetation using charcoal in 2013, eventually creating the series and eventually first solo exhibition; “There, it has grown.” . One Hundred and fifty meters of wall space in the Main Gallery of 3331, Tokyo, was filled with continually evolving artwork, including a panorama work spanning 86 meters and new work exceeding 30 meters.



Though the expanses of drawing and observation are fantastic and the variation in foliage and its different rendering incredible. I love the images of people moving through the space, for me their captured movement mirrors our fleeting time here and the patients and resilience of nature.
