Mario A
Japanese Artist

Mario A became the most popular, so-called “Japanese” artist with non-Asian heritage in the history of Japanese contemporary art. Widely recognised as the most challenging, influential and provocative artist of his generation and as the No.1 contemporary art blogger in Japan. Numerous appearances on TV and radio.
Important solo exhibitions: “The situation is under control”, “F THE GEISHA”, “ma poupée japonaise”, “The World Is Beautiful”, “Bijin-Ga”, “néo japonisme”, “A GINZA SHOW – Léonard Foujita & INOKUMA Genichiro” 2022, “KAZAHANA wunderBAR”, “A GINZA SHOW – OKADA Hiroko & AIDA Makoto” 2023; scheduled for 2024 “A GINZA SHOW – cool GOGH”, “A GINZA SHOW – NARA Yoshitomo & MURAKAMI Takashi” a.o.
Numerous monographs. Art critic Kentaro Ichihara “Mario A. An Artist of Japan as an Eternal Revolutionary”. Art critic Satoru Nagoya “Mario A, one of the most brilliantly gifted–or perhaps I should say, the single most brilliantly gifted––oil painting artist in Japan”.
His works are part of institutional and private collections in Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, Spain, South Korea, Switzerland and the U.S.A. Exhibitions held in the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, Academy of the Arts, Berlin, Rietberg Museum, Zürich, Museum of Modern Arts, Amstelveen, all important art fairs.
