Peter Doig’s Exhibition, with “NON” as the Voice Guide, has Reopened

The Peter Doig exhibition has been reopened and extended.
“NON” is the voice guide for this exhibition, so it makes this exhibition even more interesting.

Peter Doig、(April 17th, 1959-) is a contemporary artist from Scotland. When he was 3 years old, his family moved to Trinidad Island in the Caribbean Sea due to his father’s relocation working for a transportation and trade company. In 1966, the family relocated to Canada. In 1979, when Doig was 20 years old, he moved to London to study the fine arts.

He creates paintings by combining various images such as composition and motifs of works of modern painters such as Gauguin, Van Gogh, Mathis, Munch, scenes of movies and advertising graphics, and landscapes of Canada and Trinidad and Tobago where he lived.

He paints exciting works of contemporary art such as Monet-like landscapes with Jason the Killer. I encourage you to go see this exhibition. Currently, there’s a limit on how many people can enter, so I recommend ordering your tickets online.
