In the spring of 2012 we celebrated the opening of our new Narwhal gallery space with the first Canadian exhibition of Japanese artist Toshio Saeki. We thought it befitting that we conclude Narwhal’s programming with our second and final Toshio Saeki exhibition, which ended this August. The gallery is now officially closed.
We are pleased to offer Ureshidaruma, a limited edition silkscreen print by Japanese erotic art master Toshio Saeki. With very few Saeki print editions available outside Asia, this print is classic Saeki - a surreal scene of a dreaming Japanese schoolgirl holding into a giant tilting Daruma.
