本展では、SDLAがこれまでの東北滞在期間で書き記したメモや収集した画像からインスピレーションを受け制作した作品群を展示します。 "ノートブック" というレンズを通して、人々が情報をいかに消化し、理解するのか、彼の新鮮かつカラフルな視点を示すことを試みています。
SDLA is an experimental mixed-media artist currently based in Shiogama, Miyagi, Japan, grew up in the Philippines, and born in Tiohti:ake on northern Turtle Island ( now known as Montreal, Canada). Specializing in creating art inspired from illustrative note-taking, he harmoniously blends together analog and digital mediums with a knack for pop and fearless DIY-spirit.
Showcasing original work drawn from his notes, images, and tangible media taken while living in Japan's northern Tohoku region until now, his first solo exhibit aims to bring a fresh and colorful perspective on how people consume information through the lens of the notebook.
