Now here's an event which was kind of created by me and JapanTravel!
Several years ago, I wrote an article here about an art museum in Numazu, where I met the exhibiting artist, a Japanese painter called Miyashita Keisuke. That article was somehow seen by an American painter called Dan Nadaner, who contacted Miyashita and started a correspondence. And now they have a joint exhibition, at a contemporary art gallery in Tokyo's artsy Yanaka district.

Both artists paint bold abstracts: Nadaner's often have panels of muted pastel shades, broken up by heavy black lines and splashes of brighter colours; Miyashita's fields of deeper colours are lent energy by layers of lines in black, white or gold.
Nadaner isn't able to visit owing to Covid-related travel restrictions, but both Miyashita and gallery owner Yuki Kamide speak some English, so you should stop by for a chat!
