Kaoru Shibuta

Kaoru Shibuta translate musical notes into images and contemporary installations. In addition, through local culture and energy of atmosphere, he create a poetic symphony composed of images, colours and harmony, which is a perfect fusion between nature, music and art. "If Mozart is the one who composes music to link the terrestrial world to the celestial world, I am the one who undertakes him to propagate it with my painting. If Beethoven composed to surpass philosophy, then I undertake to give them a shape with my paintings. J・S・Bach is the old testament Bible of the classical music."

His work, thus becomes a manifestation of joy, a hymn to the trip, a proclamation of existence for those who forget why they are going towards a still unspecified location.” - Valerio Rossi, Curator.

James Devlin

“It’s hard to talk about art, it’s hard to talk about meaning and motive, it’s hard to talk! I’m inspired by the people around me and the places I go, my ideas are just a regurgitation of my experiences but in a distorted way. I’m simply trying to turn myself inside out. The work I intent to show at La Dolce Berlin will be my best batch yet"- James Devlin
