ARTIDE Vol.1 Participating artist introduction
We would like to introduce five artists who share the same passion as TIDE and who "never give up on expressing themselves" using the new canvas of leather products.
Born in Yamaguchi Prefecture in 1979. He aspired to be a painter from an early age, and continued painting on his own after dropping out of high school.
His first solo exhibition was held at Gallery Den (Tokyo) in 1999, and he has held numerous solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions.
He depicts the "spirit of life" using motifs from the natural world such as animals and insects, making use of colors, shapes, and strokes. His dynamic works, which use not only tools but also his hands, elbows, and feet, leave a strong impression on people.
Born in 1971 in Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture. Completed the Department of Design, Graduate School of Fine Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts.
Shimizu's works, which have participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions, incorporate many classic elements of Japanese painting, such as cherry blossoms and Mt. It is none other than Bridley's presence.
The tin bird "Bridley" was born as a symbol of time while drawing many old toys. Not only are they used as cute toys, but they are also depicted in a variety of phantasmagoric forms, including phoenixes and Yatagarasu.
He is an artist who depicts the unique world of Bridley.
Born in Mie Prefecture in 1983. Graduated from Musashino Art University's Department of Art and Design in 2008.
He rose to prominence while attending art university and won numerous awards.
His style is ``inventive'', and he thoroughly considers the various ways in which painting materials can be used, and by making the most of their possibilities, he creates a wide range of ambitious works, including abstract and figurative paintings, which amazes the viewer. Draw into the world of the work.
He has also appeared in many media outlets. In 2020, he appeared on Amazon Prime Video's original program "Bachelorette Japan" and stole the show, so keep an eye on his future activities.
Issei Suzuki (SUZUKI ISSEI)
Born in Yokohama in 2001. He was the youngest to appear on BS Fuji's ``Break Eve ~Next Generation Artists~'', held his first solo exhibition while still in high school, and has since attracted attention for numerous collaborative projects.
The motifs in his paintings are political and social issues that touch his heart. I mix this with my own interpretation and express it by making extensive use of the three primary colors (blue-green, red-purple, and yellow).
Born in Hyogo Prefecture in 1989.
His works are characterized by avant-garde techniques such as splashing and bare hands, and are drawn with the Japanese sensibilities of ``mitate'' and ``Zen'', and which emphasize spirituality and meaning, mixed with philosophical and anthropological considerations. .
He views the creation and appreciation of art as a ``ritual of confirmation'' unique to humankind, and makes the expression of ``certain truth for humans'' the theme of his work.
