Rei Sato Solo Exhibition at Lehmann Maupin Gallery

Japanese artist and Takashi Murakami discovery, Rei Sato, made her US debut with a solo exhibition showcasing her unique and charming style of work. Lehmann Maupin Gallery is the host for her debut which features a new series of paintings that allow the viewer to escape into a fantasy land with simply drawn children and things of a “kawaii” (Japanese for “cute”) nature. Sato creates these beautiful works of art by photographing common sites on the street then superimposing her drawings of children or furry animals into the picture. The show runs through August 8th.
