Oiwa Island 2 – large-scale painting created on an inflatable vinyl dome

Oiwa-Island-2

Oscar Oiwa is globally recognized for his large-scale installations.  “Oiwa Island 2” depicts a detailed island landscape created completely with a black marker. An air dome with a radius of approximately six meters, looking much like a spaceship, has been installed in a former soy sauce storehouse. A painting of a door on the side of the dome turns out to be the actual door through which visitors can enter the dome. The dome interior depicts the Setouchi landscape, unfolding in a 360 degree panorama.
The installation was created for the 2016 Setouchi Triennale, which begins on March 20, 2016.
