Rafael Akahira, a French-Japanese painter and graphic artist, a creator of abstract intuitive works, inspired by emotions rather than rational thinking. His large woodcuts are characterised by an unpredictable spontaneity, tension and excess. The title of the exhibition Rollercoaster refers to an overabundance of emotions, adrenaline, mixture of fun and fear associated with rollercoaster rides, all of which are present in Rafael Akahira's artwork. Both the theme and character of his art are simultaneously influenced by the artist's dual ethnicity - growing up as both French and Japanese affected his artistic sensibility.
