visiting mosaic artists & their workshops in 2016
ABOUT THE MOSAIC VISITING ARTIST...
Japanese Maestro Toyoharu Kii is coming to MASS! Kii will be running a three day workshop teaching students “How do you express the feeling of something with one color? To make a mosaic in white, one must think about what is the originality of mosaic.”
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience Kii’s technique and philosophy behind his art making process. The limited palette is about noticing the subtleness of a colour as the light hits the various ways of cutting the marble. Attention will be placed on movement, expressions, texture and content.
Toyoharu Kii graduated from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in 1977 and finished the Master’s program of the same university in 1980. He continued his studies in Florence, Italy, with a grant from the Italian government. In 1982, Kii returned to Japan and opened Mosaic Atelier ING, through which he has realized over fifty mural mosaics. He is currently a part-time lecturer at Joshibi University of Art and Design and Musashino Art University. His work has been featured in exhibitions worldwide, most recently in exhibitions in the US, Ravenna, Italy, and Turkey.
