Matabee valued peoples’ bonds, wishing the world no conflicts and fights and devoted his life time to express his wishes in the space of canvas. His paintings are creative and express his own ideas and feelings. Bara Gallery is a fan of Matabee Goto. Matabee is a great artist. It should have been a wonderful meeting if Matabee could have met with Picasso or Chagall. Bara Gallery continues to display Matabee’s depiction of love.

“IXXI” is a brand name of Interior Art Product from Holland. It offers famous paintings, recreated by the most modern print technology, at a reasonable price. For printing, a special synthetic paper from Germany is used, which prevents paintings from being sunburned (changing color) and is protected from water as well. Each card is connected each other by special connecters and high quality double-sided adhesive tape. The recreated paintings can be easily assembled, disassembled, moved, and fit any places. You can produce your own space with IXXI and your choice of paintings.
This time we chose printings of Matabee Goto for collaboration with “IXXI”. “IXXI” represents Matabee’s imaginary world very well. “IXXI” enables children and adults to have arts in their daily life.
“IXXI” can be easily installed anywhere to fill up boring empty space; shop, offices, public places as well as home.
