It’s easy to get swept up in all the exciting events, from Art Central and Asia Contemporary Arts Show to Savouring Art 2019 – but don’t forget to check out the more intimate art events too!

Whitestone gallery is bringing back Japanese artist Miwa Komatsu for her second solo exhibition. Entitled ‘Divine Spirit’, it’s a showcase of her latest works, including her signature ‘Guardian’ series, which blends together childhood memories, spiritual beliefs, and observations of the world around us. She often draws inspiration from different religions, beliefs and mythological texts, especially Shinto – a religion with roots in Japan, which believes in the interconnectivity of all things. Her new work is more experimental than ever before, and even incorporates 3D printing! This show is sure to be fantastic, and you don’t want to miss it.
