Koji Kamoji – Cisza i wola życia
Koji Kamoji came to Poland at the beginning of his artistic career, right after graduating from University. It was 1959, and most Japanese artists which were emigrating to Europe were heading to the other side of the Iron Curtain – to Western Europe. Kamoji, though, whether it was out of spite or guided by his family history, decided to settle in post-Thaw Poland.
Kamoji quickly found himself within the orbit of the famous Foksal Gallery and became an integral part of it. In his work, he combines elements of Japanese aesthetics and philosophy with the European avant-garde. A retrospective of his work was on display at the Zachęta National Gallery in the summer of 2018.
