KÖNIG SOUVENIR is pleased to pre-announce Ayako Rokkaku's UNTITLED (2021) beach towel, coinciding with her solo presentation at the KÖNIG GALERIE booth of Frieze Los Angeles. The artist has just recently joined the gallery’s programme.
This cotton beach towel features Rokkaku’s painting UNTITLED (2021), which depicts a floating dreamscape of colourful clouds. At a closer look, wide-eyed girls and other fantastical manga-style creatures appear in the cloud formations.
Rokkaku creates her paintings in an intuitive, performative act in which she applies the acrylic paint with her bare hands, transferring the movement of her body onto the canvas. The artist’s visual language oscillates between abstraction and figuration, and is informed by the aesthetics of kawaii culture, as rich and limitless as a child’s vivid imagination.
