We are pleased to announce an exhibition Kuroshio by Bram Chilton Smiley on April 25(Thu.) to 27(Sat.), as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura.
Bram Chilton Smiley is a communication designer and illustrator living in the UK. His drawings often reference geographical features and landscapes in a monochromatic colour scheme that consider light and shadow and form his minimalistic style. He graduated from Norwich University of the Arts in 2018 and has since been developing his creative practice, combining the more expressive nature of his drawing with the structure of his design work.
The Kuroshio Current runs along Japan’s east coast and splits into the Tsushima Current that travels through the Sea of Japan. These currents carry warm subtropical waters that support the diverse marine life as well as acting as a gateway to the country. Bram’s project explores the visual language of graphs and charts that depict these ocean currents, studying the natural shapes in the movement of water.
