SHOP Taka Ishii Gallery recently opened the doors in Hong Kong. The five-month-long concept shop will rotate dynamic artworks, apparel, and other merchandise made by leading international artists. Spearheading the inaugural installment is prolific Japanese artist, Tomoo Gokita.

Gokita is long-lauded for his grey-scale paintings of pop culture subjects with a Neo-Expressionistic twist. For the experimental retail space, he created new works crafted using acrylic goatee on plywood and paper over publicity photos — signaling a new body of work by the artist. Accompanying these pieces are readily available consumables such as jackets designed by the artist alongside CD’s and LP’s.
