Art Exhibit: Hideo Sakata
July 19, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
“Hideo Sakata paints luminous images and fantastical abstractions, pictures that envelop the imagination. But he also lives with art in the real world, working tirelessly with other artists in organizations that advance the artistic causes and that bridge countries and cultures. A native of Nagasaki, Sakata-san was a child when an atomic bomb exploded above his city. Shielded from the impact itself, the young artist-to-be still saw the flash and witnessed the aftermath. It was a revelation, a visual one of heaven itself exploding and a spiritual one that all humans are precious, all civilizations rich, and art is the concrete manifestation of this.”
