"Keita Morimoto is a painter who moved to Canada from Osaka, Japan in 2006. Before and after graduating from OCAD University in 2012, Morimoto’s work has been exhibited in New York, Denver, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Indiana, Berlin, Portland, San Francisco, Miami, MontrĂ©al, Peterborough as well as Toronto."

"This is Morimoto’s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Internationally renowned artist Keita Morimoto’s luminous cityscapes and portraits are painted in a classical technique that blends fantastical elements with real locations he finds in Tokyo and Toronto. His amplified use of colour and cinematic compositions transform everyday streets scenes into extraordinary worlds. While his paintings are dreamy, aesthetic tributes to storefronts, parking lots and other everyday urban encounters, underlying tones of isolation and displacement allude to concerns for the structural fragility and moral codes of contemporary life."
