Dominique Lévy, in collaboration with Axel Vervoordt Gallery, is pleased to publish the first definitive English-language monograph on Shiraga’s work. Titled Kazuo Shiraga, this volume includes innovative scholarly essays on Shiraga’s artistic practice and the ways in which it was inspired by both Western action painting and ancient Japanese Buddhist ritual; previously unpublished archival material pertaining to Shiraga’s career; and selected writings by Shiraga in English translation. Kazuo Shiraga also features a complete facsimile of the artist’s personal scrapbook of photographs documenting his public performances and painting process – a rare treasure never before seen by the public.
