Moosey London is delighted to announce our first solo exhibition by Japanese artist Jun Oson. The exhibition will launch on Thursday 12th May, 6-8pm. Jun Oson is a Japanese artist who was born in 1979, he started his career as an illustrator in 2005. His art works’s have a stateless style based on the influence of manga and animations that have been unconsciously influenced since childhood, with elements from western artists. Oson’s pieces are often playful and comical, highlighting an electric cast of humanoid creatures that are inspired by 70’s and 80’s pop culture cartoons. Specialising in pop designs that utilise vibrant colours combined with quintessential Japanese anime techniques.
In addition to people with various skin colours, monsters and robots appear throughout his works. “Diversity’ is something he has always had since he started his career and is fundamental to his values. Besides painting, Oson also does product commissions, animations and advertising, book illustrations, as well as cover designs.Jun Oson has presented his works as an artist at several individual and group exhibitions up to now, but his 2019 solo exhibition “Share Land” in Beijing and his 2020 solo exhibition “DISTANCE” in Diesel, Tokyo, have shown that he has changed from an illustrator to an artist. His impressive pieces, such as layered works and works moulded into contours, get people’s attention not only in Japan but also in foreign countries.
12th May – 5th June, 2022, Moosey London, 22 – 24 Camden Passage, Islington, N1 8ED
