Trattoria Gallery Matsumoto - Tetsu Yamashita Paper Quilt Exhibition

Tetsu Yamashita Paper Quilt Exhibition is going to be held at Trattoria Gallery Matsumoto from July 7th to August 25th. 

“Paper Quilt” is Tetsu Yamashita’s original art work. At first he makes colorful small parts which he cuts out of paper, and sticks them onto a paper. It requires incredible patience and delicate work. At first sight, it is difficult to recognize that it is a paper cut work, but it is. His motif is Africa. When he was younger, he was interested in Africa, and he studied African language in Africa. After that he traveled around 5 countries in Africa. He was inspired by African culture, nature, people and animals. He presents them by colorful sensitive cutting art work.

I really recommend you to see these brilliant art works up close. You can find exotic power in these sensitive works. You can also enjoy fabulous Italian pizza, pasta and so on in the gallery restaurant. Having good food whilst appreciating art will be a special time for you.
