Masako Suzuki ZOO-M

Great apology for not uploading the news on
Masako Suzuki solo exhibition "ZOO-M"!

This show, the artist's second solo show at FOIL GALLERY,
run through 6th - 28th November, did go really great.
Although she is young artists who debuted last year, the minutely drawn,
immensely built universe of Suzuki's works fascinated great number of visitors,
both first-time viewers as well as the fans from the last year's exhibition.

Her same titled first collection book "ZOO-M" is also well received
- we have also brought some for Paris Photo venue to introduce to the audience
in the Europe, but all the books were sold out there!
