Itch − Kenji Ichikawa − has previously been selected three times for the Taro Okamoto Contemporary Art Prize Exhibition, and expected to do great things in the future. Hatch − Kotaro Hachinohe − previously belonged to the pivotal centre of the Japanese calligraphy world, and along with continued study, his future is one filled also with great expectations. Working day and night on his pieces, in a corner of Tokyo is Itch. Holding his brush day and night in a corner of New York is Hatch. While Itch’s Ikebana series and Hatch’s trace K series have been acquired by many overseas collectors, they are yet to appear on the horizon in their home ? Japan. The same Itch and Hatch met by coincidence last Autumn at Kitai Gallery and will thus unite for this exhibition ‘Itchka Hatchka’ (Itch or Hatch)..
