Japanese abstract painter Ryosuke Misawa will also make his Hofa début at Mykonos in summer 2023. His unique style of portraiture which combines influences of digital and analog media result in artworks which literally and conceptually reach beyond the bounds of their flat canvases, intriguing viewers with a sense of familiarity and alienation that serve the artist’s goal of illuminating gaps in perception.
