KAZUSA MATSUYAMA


Fine Artist based in Tokyo, Japan

1992 Born in Tokyo, Japan

His work responds to his own bi-cultural experience of growing up between Japan and United Kingdom by bringing together aspects of both Eastern and Western aesthetic systems.


When he returned home to Japan, He began working on paintings that referenced his creative roots both in Japan culture and Western culture.

Using Japanese ink, spray paint, oil painting, acrylics and mixed media to transform traditional Japanese paintings in a contemporary style.

While including anonymity through distorted emotions and abstract depictions, a “scene” is framed to not only portray the cosmetic emotions of everyday life, but to pursue the beauty hidden in the essence.

He is influenced by a variety of subjects, including Japanese art from Edo and Meiji eras, French Renaissance painting, post-war contemporary art, and the visual language of global, popular culture as embodied by mass-produced commodities.
