8/ ART GALLERY/ Tomio Koyama Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of prints by David Lynch.

David Lynch is a well-known film director but has also expressed his creative impulses in other media from his early years: painting, photography, animation, and sculpture as well as film. His largest retrospective exhibition at Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris in 2007 achieved great success. In Japan, he held solo exhibitions at the Toko Museum of Contemporary Art in 1991and Laforet Museum Harajuku in 2012. This exhibition features lithographs and woodcut prints produced in recent years.

David Lynch was born in 1946, in Montana, USA. He enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1965, aiming to become a painter. Funded by AFI (American Film Institute), he completed the production of “Eraserhead” in 1977. He went on to release “The Elephant Man” in 1980 which was nominated in eight categories at the Academy Awards, “Blue Velvet” in 1986 which was nominated for Best Director at the Academy Awards, and “Wild at Heart” in 1990 which won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. His TV series “Twin Peaks” which ran from 1989 to 1991 became a big hit all over the world and the sequel series was released in 2017. He received the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2001 with “Mulholland Drive”, and in 2006 he was given the Golden Lion Award for lifetime achievement at the Venice Film Festival. His documentary film “David Lynch Art Life” will be released in Japan on January 27, 2018
