MANABU KISHIMOTO

Contemporary Artist

1990 Born in Minamikawachi-gun, Osaka, Japan Lives and works in Tokyo, Japan

Graduated from Rikkyo University, Department of Visual Arts, Faculty of Contemporary Psychology

 

With the theme of "the contours of the ambiguous," he attempts to deconstruct and reconstruct the things that have been divided and categorized by the "visualization" of digital society.

He questions the framework of categorization, based on the gradation of human beings and their emotions, which cannot be expressed in black and white.

 

Influenced by his experience as a graphic designer and the expressions of animation, manga, and street culture, he sublimates them and incorporates them into his unique expressions.

 

He uses the "Togidashi" technique of lacquer painting, in which layers of acrylic paint are applied and then scraped off to create his works.
