Press Release:

“Nice to meet you. My name is Sotaro Yamamoto. I was born in 1949 and grew up in a small town of
Nishio city, Aichi prefecture which is in the middle of Japan as you can see on the map. By luck in this year I
managed to have a solo show at Gallery Onetwentyeight. I majored in design at the art department of
Nippon University. Upon my graduation, I was employed by a commercial design company. Seven years
ago, I left the company, and became a free person to concentrate on painting and illustration. Last year, I
took a trip to Katmandu, Nepal to sketch. After I returned to Japan in Spring, I made a solo show of these
sketches and I worked on ideas I kept alive for years. Fortunately I now have this opportunity to show them
in New York.

The theme of the show is ‘MYO’ …Strange People. They are ink on paper.

I have been dreaming of New York. My wish that someday I could make a solo show there has become
stronger and stronger. My dream came true this time. I thank all the people who helped to realize this show
including the owner of Gallery Onetwentyeight, Kazuko Miyamoto.”
