Akane Hirose Solo Exhibition「the shape of hygge」
Aug 1, 2021  # Art # Atelier

At atelier ST, CAT, we curate the exhibition with the concept of “art that you want to decorate your room with flowers”.
Exhibitions by artists are held about twice a month.

Akane Hirose’s solo exhibition “the shape of hygge” will be held on 8/13 (fri) – 8/31 (tue).

We are holding the first exhibition of self-taught artist Akane Hirose.
Her colors and forms have a pleasant warmth and beautiful sophistication. The work that transforms the room into a comfortable space is also recommended as an interior.

“The shape of hygge” by Akane Hirose
8/13 (fri)-8/31 (tue) 13-18: 00 (sat / sun 12-19: 00) closed on thu

“Hygge” means “Comfortable” and “Cool” in Danish.
Whether you are new to this word or it has already become a part of your life, I think there will be moments when each person will settle down.
It would be great if you could find a shape that makes you feel good when you are looking at it, that makes you feel a little refreshed even on a hot day, and that makes you feel a little warm even in a cool room.

The work will also be sold remotely. The work list will be posted on the website.
Please contact us at info@st-cat.com.

Rina Lina solo exhibition 「Surrender」
Jul 26, 2021  # Art # ST,CAT

This is an announcement of the Rina Lila solo exhibition “Surrender -Entrust-” to be held on 7/27 (tue) -8/9 (mon).

Her works are full of positive rhythms. We feel that the performance using my own body, which is showed on SNS, is also very attractive because they are not bound by stereotypes.

Art as an energy that spreads organically, without being bound by the shape of flat art. Original and contemporary. It is a powerful identity.

“Surrender -Entrust-” by Rina Lila

7/27 (tue)-8/9 (mon) 13-18: 00 (sat / sun 12-19: 00)
closed on 7/29, 8/5

It springs up from within me without trying to control everything
I value and just express.
Do not judge anything that springs up, but accept it with a pure heart.
There is nothing good or bad about what comes out, it’s just there to make use of it for learning.
Dark colors, muddy colors, and bright colors are all “representations of something” in me.
It is a work drawn with the theme of “entrusting” like that.
With this production, I became able to be conscious of “entrusting” in my daily life, and I feel that my shoulders have been relaxed one step further.
I hope that these works will be an opportunity for everyone to “entrust”.

We also sell works of art, T-shirts, tote bags, and postcard-sized artworks.
We also sell remotely. Click here for a list of works.
Please contact us or request additional photos via e-mail (info@st-cat.com).

Rina Lila @rina_lila_art
She intuitively draws things that spring from the inside.
she had nothing to do with art until he graduated from university, but while traveling alone in Southeast Asia, she began to self-taught when he was urged to draw. She was drawn into the world of paint sensations and colors and began to express herself with acrylic paints.
“Through art, I met my true self, created connections with people, and made my life more enjoyable.” Rina

Our daily life has changed a lot.

I think that the usual things have suddenly become less commonplace and the seasons have passed in a blink of an eye.

I thought that there were many wonderful scenery, wind and water sounds, and events that I wanted to keep in those days, and I overlooked them.

This time, we are exhibiting a picture that looks like a dream-like reality and prayer, like a wish to be like this, by cutting out the momentary color that we found in casual everyday life.

Works and goods will also be sold remotely. The work list is here.

Every time I read my own diary, I feel like it belongs to someone else.
I know that I made it through yesterday so, tomorrow will be the same.
We are just chasing after a beam of light.
Do we keep moving forward? Or just watching another light passes us by?
Even this present moment really relies on the ambiguity of time. But at least I feel my presence by painting this moment my own color. Someday, I will look back on today saying “I feel like it’s about someone else’s dream.”

This is a photo exhibition with unseen works that are announced for his next photobook. Printed works and the latest photobook “Akatsuka” will be sold during the period of the exhibition.

“Lost My Mind” by Yuuki Ikegami

Spring 2020.

The State of Emergency was announced to Tokyo due to the expansion of COVID-19. We couldn’t even go out. I was forced to live in a limited space and had anxious days.

Until the point that I noticed the beauty of the sky which was the same as before …

For about a month from that day, I continued to take pictures of the sky from my balcony. The short time I took the pictures of the sky was a free moment to save me from the anxiety.

Looking at this picture, along with the song written by naomi paris tokyo, I remember the motion of the sky at that day and pray.

May the peaceful days return soon…

From the “Lost My Mind” Art Book released in November last year, we will exhibit works using graphics and collages, and sell art books and art works.

message from her

It’s not just because the comfort you feel in front of the beautiful scenery is beautiful.
I think that it is because the scenery and the world of my own appear there, I can look at myself as I confront myself, and accept my emotions and thoughts as they are.
It would be great if you could feel the moment when your daily troubles disappear and your heart melts.

She grows right next to the calm Seto Inland Sea.

Rika inspires us.

There are a calm tumult in her pictures.

We can go inside of them filled with colors which is the reflection of her consciousness.

It is the quiet and noisy place.
It is beautiful and awful too.

Her inspirations come from
woman walking toward me who is sensual,
night villages in France and Italy
absolute beauty of nature such as mineral and morning glow,
philosophic sensuality(eros) as sublime love.

Born in 1997.
She started to create when she was young. She hold her first solo exhibition in this fall.
Her ideas are influenced by avant-garde arts, fin-de-siècle arts and conceptual arts.

column #3 ”summer”








ヘミングウェイが書いた「移動祝祭日(Moveable Feast)」は、その騒々しくて創造性に満ちた時代感を感じられるエッセイですが、彼の、普通の(若々しく貧しい)日常を物語のように変えていくさま(あるいは麗しく回想しているさま)は、すごく素敵です。

column #1 ”pure”

先日、小林エリカさんらが参加するクリエイティブガールズユニット「kvina」による子育てにまつわるものを考えるプロジェクト「POR BEBO」がこの夏から開催する予定だという、未就園児を育児中のお母さんお父さんに向けた朝食会「rondo」のプレイベントに参加しました。

会では、Emily Dickinsonの詩 No.254をモチーフにした、オープンサンドをいただきました。Emily Dickinsonが生前家に閉じこもって制作をしていたという境遇を、産後の母親たちがあまり家から出られない状況と重ね合わせ、彼女の作品が選ばれた


さて、その日に食べたサンドイッチも素晴らしかったのですが、一緒に飲んだノンカフェインの「pukka pure」というハーブティーもとても美味しかったので早速購入しました。

先日、上野の西洋美術館で行われていたLe Corbusierの展覧会に行きましたが、Purism(純粋主義/ピュリスム)を提唱し、後にシンプルで機能的な建築や家具を生み出したコルビジェの作品でも白が重要な役割を担っています。



朝食会で選ばれたEmily Dickinsonの詩の中では、「希望」には羽があり、それは同時に魂に宿るもの、と唄っていました。サンドイッチの上で、軽やかな白いチーズに例えられた希望でしたが、彼女にとって、軽やかな翼を持って外の世界に羽ばたくことと、心の内側に羽ばたくこと、それはどちらも同じように壮大なことだったのではないかと思います。




Mana Hiraki inspires atelier ST, CAT
Sep 19, 2018  # Art

Mana Hiraki inspires us.

Calm tenderness means strong atmosphere in her paintings.
In her world colored with fluid and vague touch, gentleness and vividness exist at same time.

She talks about the origins of inspiration as below.
“I visualize abstract things such as border, affection and mood.
A rice bowl using everyday, a sweater given from someone special, a flower grown from a seed, a round stone found in the sea, a pink shell without lacking,
a bedroom with your own smell, a town you were born…

Everyone feels attachment to something and they are increasing in their life.
We can not stop to feel attachment to stuffs.

For example, victims dispossessed of their hometown can not leave there easily.
I visit to Fukushima 5 years after the earthquake and talked to people living in their temporary housing.
They were not lived, they lived.
They felt attachment to the land where they were born and raised even after the disaster attacked.

I like vintages.
Someone’s memory. Someone’s life.
I can feel her/his sign and life from the stains on it.
In my works, I want to include that kind of mood made with hands naturally so just vintages can hold.

Attachment in everyone make their energy to live more strong.

I want to create like singing a gentle song to loneliness in the fog.

And I always inspired by Anselm Kiefer.”

Takuro Kishibe inspires atelier ST, CAT
Sep 26, 2017  # Art

Takuro Kishibeinspires us.

He removes specific personalities from the image, so he can create strong rhythms.
And our thought are spun by them.

He talked about his inspirations to us.
“Basically, my works don’t have specific themes, so I’m inspired by how they begin and where they land.
Important words for me might be ‘random and by chance’.

I cut, tear, put, place and turn materials randomly and unexpected ‘faces’ appear by chance.
And then I play catch with the chances. We look for the place to land through a communication such as Japanese Oogiri together. We find the most comfortable place in the end.

‘unexpected faces’ are all different, so they always make me enjoy.”




Yuta Nishiura inspires atelier ST, CAT
Aug 21, 2017  # Art

Yuta Nishiura inspires us.

His sculptures are telling the tales to us.

In front of the works, we fall into the feeling that we see them through the consciousness not just eyes.

Each piece sinks in our inner part widely and deeply and take us to the world of subconsciousness where the concept of time doesn’t exist.

There are mysteries with his sculptures.

He talks about the origins of inspiration as below.
“When I take a moment focusing on things I do and feel in my daily life, I sometimes discover something out of place or wonders, which can turn into the seeds expanding my imaginary landscapes. The various landscapes collected in everyday life become important settings and stories on my creation. It was a Makonde teacher who taught me fascinations and initiation of wood sculptures while I stayed in Tanzania. As if he was turing the pages of an illustrated book, he chiseled a wood block and told me simultaneously a story regarding the work piece in front of us. His attitude towards his art works has been always my ideal. Walking through the landscapes of my collections and creating a visible art work with a piece out of them.”

Takahiro Murahashi inspires us.

His collage works make us to think back to the memories, but also we are surprised by the balance that is very contemporary and never seen.

The composition he creates include an amusing boldness and sensitivity somehow.

The expression makes us feel unfamiliar and familiar at same time.

He talks about the inspiration to us.
“I’m inspired by ‘a lump of materials’.
a mass of plaster, soil, rock, tree or metal and combinations of different kinds.
sculptures decaying and being abstract.
Shadows made by surface roughness and decorations.”

Zhong Xian inspires us.

Her magical animation “EAR” is very addicting…

We quote her words here.
“EAR” is a small animation describe my inner during the period of 2016-2017. For human sensorium, I think ears are the subtlest one to shape, to abstract and emoted everything, every memories become abstract and even rational pictures through the annotation of ear.
Some inspiration like the circles, lines and cubes are from Seiko’s earring’s design, storyline and sound are from my daily experience. Story meaning basically like a three-storey stair, one is leave for annotation, another portray my memories, and the last one is a message, I leave for a specific person.

Miki Yoshioka inspired us.
At atelier ST, CAT in Setagaya, Tokyo, we exhibit a special short movie made by Miki Yoshioka for ST, CAT from 16th to 23rd of July. She is born in 1996 and studying at Musashino Art University. GIFs she makes from photographies are very unique and  fresh. She is always inspired by old Japanese films by Yasujiro Ozu and Yasuzo Masumura.
