OF NOTE

Brazilian painter to show works

Brazilian artist Marcos Duprat, who is now serving as his country's consul general in Tokyo, will hold an exhibition of his recent paintings from June 20 to July 1.

Duprat's paintings are expected to express his perceptions and visual impressions of how his world has changed in the past three years since he moved from Latin America to Japan.

Art critic Takeshi Kanazawa wrote of Duprat: "The world created by this artist is all an illusion of a subtle reality extended beyond a transparent film. Or is it more appropriate to call it a daydream?"

Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1944, Duprat studied at the Fine Arts National School and the Workshop of the Museum of Modern Art during the 1960s. Later he took drawing courses at Waseda University in Tokyo and completed his master's degree in fine arts at the American University in Washington, D.C.

The exhibition will be held at PROMO-ARTE Gallery at Galeria Bldg., 5-51-3 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, June 20 -July 1. The exhibit will be open from noon to 7 p.m.; admission is free. For more information call (03) 3400-1995.
