About the logo
The logo was renewed on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the opening of the museum. Like the old logo, Nissho’s representative work “Horse (Unfinished)” is used as the logo. Because it is incomplete, it is a work that leaves room for the imagination of each viewer.
The logotype is also conscious of the world of Nissho’s work by not writing all the characters but making them unfinished.
By coloring the letters “A”, “R”, and “T” that are hidden in the letters of “KANDA NISSHO MEMORIAL MUSEUM of ART”, Nissho is introduced as a painter whose life and painting are one, and it expresses that “Nissho” and “Art” were inseparable.
“In the end, what kind of work you create depends on how you live your life.” As this saying speaks, Nissho’s work makes us feel strongly about Nissho’s way of life.
It is a logo that incorporates Nissho’s art and the world of his work into the logo mark and logotype.
