Sweet Octopus by Osamu Watanabe, Mixedmedia, 62.0 x 70.0 x 17.0 cm, 2017.

Also known as the Prince of Sweets by creating Resin Cream Art, the artist has become one of the leading figures of Japanese contemporary art, especially in the field of Kawaii Art. His obsession with all things sweet is traced back to his childhood, when his mother was a teacher at a confectionary school. The artist was born in Yamaguchi Prefecture in 1980 and graduated from the Department of Design at Tokyo Zokei University in 2003.

Founded in the heart of Tokyo in 1967, Whitestone Gallery has been one of a small number of pioneering galleries in Japan. Whitestone Gallery Hong Kong is the first overseas operation of the gallery. With extensive survey on East Asian post-war period artists and art movements, the gallery hopes to create a new dialogue about the relationship between contemporary and modern art in Asia, and add more diversity to the multicultural art scene in Hong Kong.
