MAGO GALLERY YOKOHAMA is Japan’s seventh gallery in Motomachi, Yokohama, dedicated to Shingo Nagasaka, a pioneer of sustainable art. Nagasaka is an artist who works to solve poverty and environmental problems under the motto of “Sustainable Capitalism.” His creations reuse e-waste that developed countries illegally dumped in Agbogbloshie, a slum in Ghana. MAGO GALLERY YOKOHAMA exhibits his artworks and others drawn with traditional Japanese painting materials.
They promote the “Super Star Project” as well. Nagasaka gives Children in Ghana art lessons and sells their arts at MAGO GALLERY YOKOHAMA. 10% of the proceeds go back to the child artists in Ghana.
Not only as an exclusive gallery, but also does MAGO GALLERY YOKOHAMA function as an event venue. They corporate with companies, local governments, and students involved in SDGs-related activities and hold various events and workshops.
CINQ ARTS Inc., an art division of Goemon Holdings, runs the gallery. They collect waste and used goods in Fujisawa, Kanagawa Prefecture.
