Kawahara Asao was born July 11th 1949 in Mejiro, Tokyo.
He is a painter, who continues to paint a deep world, that projects the depth of tranquility.
Clear, mysterious and a place that could be the beginning of something. There is no sense of life or time, an enigmatic world is born, that exists in it’s own universe.
He is a painter, who is one step apart from the category of contemporary art. The image floats without connection to the world around it in a tightly drawn space without gaps. This sense of severance is Kawahara Asao’s world.
Kawahara, who left Japan in his 20s and now lives in Italy, says that like Giorgio de Chirico and Carlo Carrà a clear, mysterious place that could be the beginning of something is a feeling that fits him well. There is no sense of life or time and through mystery an enigmatic world is born. It exists in it’s own secluded universe.
