Situations Gallery Artist Masamitsu Shigeta Attending Exhibit by Scroll This January

Situations Gallery Artist Masamitsu Shigeta Attending Exhibit by Scroll This January

NEW YORK CITY, New York – The work of New York mainstay artist Masamitsu Shigeta will be featured at Scroll, a TriBeCa Art Gallery hosting a group event in January 2023.

TriBeCa Art Gallery Scroll has enjoyed significant success since its launch in September 2011 at 86 Walker Street. Scroll has hosted a variety of artists such as Raul Guerrera, Sargy Mann, and Rute Merk in various exhibitions celebrating artistic perspectives highlighting work offering a strong sense of dimension and life. 

As critics begin to return to pieces focused on scenery, depth, and still life while veering away from the conceptualism that has gripped the scene in recent years, Scroll is curating exhibits that capture the true creativity of both mainstays to the scene and new perspectives. As Masamitsu Shigeta develops greater prominence as an artist in his previous work with Situations Gallery and Tyler Park Presents Gallery in Los Angeles, his technique is receiving praise for the simple but proficient capture of hauntingly beautiful sceneries.

Masamitsu Shigeta has found success in his last 9 years of painting, focusing primarily on offering a beautiful new perspective to natural and manmade sceneries ranging from rural settings with a lush natural life to urban environments that inspire a sense of both vast space and formidability and enclosure.

Reflecting the Inherent Beauty of Several Sceneries

Mainly using acrylic on paper and focusing on portraying the beauty of the vast cityscapes of New York, Shigeta focuses on keeping a balance between the presence of nature and architecture. Every brushstroke is conscious and gestural, and Shigeta portrays the vivid colors of scenery in its visceral form. 

The artist also builds each frame specifically for his works to express the full sense of the subject. Oftentimes Shigeta finds the materials for the frames in and around the city or near his studio, adding a sculptural touch to a visual experience in order to express the full energy of the city itself.

Typically creating art that replicates moments from his daily commute, Shigeta expresses an impressive level of depth in his work, studying the natural geometry of the scenery, combining gorgeous representations of the lush and persevering life of nature with the resilience of concrete and iron playing against natural light. A mainstay of New York City, Masamitsu Shigeta’s work has been featured in other cultural hubs across the country such as Nashville, Miami, and Los Angeles.
