Born to an American impressionist painter father and a Japanese contemporary filmmaker mother, Shingo has established himself as a global artist achieving special recognition at ARCO in Spain, among other places, and through notable exhibitions in Japan and in the U.S.
His opening at the 5 Star Hotel Casa del Mar, was well-attended by friends of Shingo and friends of his parents, spanning generations. Along with another artist, Felicia, who created a wonderful image incorporating an existing mirror, Shingo floated painted paper spheres above the expansive lounge, mounted translucent colored spheres in windows, and installed colored hula hoop sculptures in the beach sand in front of the hotel. He also showed framed works hung on walls throughout the hotel’s main areas.
Installation Inauguration: October 27, 7pm
