Artist :MIZUNO RYO   

Ryo Mizuno, born in Saitama, Japan in 1970, then graduated from Sociology Department of Tokyo University in 1998. Although he didn’t have any professional art study background, he never stops his passion for art. Ryo Mizuno paints every day during all his spare time while he works for a Japanese game company more than 18 years. Ryo Mizuno began to hold group and solo exhibitions in many galleries and museums from 2001 and also won lots of painting awards. His fantasy world increated by pencil lines does not only surprise us, but also brings us the endless imagination. 
His solo exhibition in Shanghai 4 years ago which was called 1000 Funny Doll attracted many visitors then,with the features of Japanese-style comic “kimokawa” (through a little bit sick but still cute). With different kinds of expressions,the 1000 girls had the first time to be together. They wre
also given birth date by the artist, they all happened to be born in1980s. Ryo Mizuno did a full interpretation of children born in 1980s or all children who have the experiences to being an adult  We can find the weakness,fragility, lonliness, seeking for speciality,making day-dreams and so on which are the common points of the people in the puberty。
 
After four years, what kind of fantasy story that Ryo Mizuno will bring to us? In 2012, Ryo Mizuno published his own brochure “4”, named “3”, as well as the artist’s website darwinghell as publisher. Simple yet unique cover, but when you turn the pages, you will find the pictures, looking similar like the yonkoma comic book, but every page has not only one story.This is the characteristic of Ryo Mizuno’s painting, and also a gift to the viewers from him. He wants to give the viewers a brick to open the door of imagination, which they can find their own treasure.
 
Let us wait and see what fantasy tale Ryo Mizuno will tell us on the solo exhibition in Shanghai 2013.
