In Japan, there is the expression ‘飛ぶ鳥を落とす勢い’ (translated literally as, “force to take down a flying bird”) which implies great vigor.

To celebrate the new year and in hopes that the coming year will be an energized one, Tokyo Ippodo Gallery is holding a group exhibition of works by artists who have been selected based on their standing as some of the most vigorous artists in Japan.
The exhibition title, ‘Great Vigor’, expresses our sentiments not only for the creative side of the art world, but also for those audiences and patrons on the other side of the creative process – in other words, we hope for a robust appreciation of the arts. We hope you will not miss this great opportunity to see our artists’ works.
