Akaike Ryoto 

 

was born February 1986 in Tokyo, Japan

graduated from Kyoto University of Art&Design.

After that completed Nihonga painting master's degree of

Tama Art University. 

This feeling that the Japanese have, the syncretism of Buddhism and Shinto, is my creative focal point. Many of the Japanese are not particularly Buddhist nor Shintoist. However, we believe in both Shinto deities and Buddhas as a part of our lifestyle. I extract motifs and ideologies from deities and Buddha, as an existence to save people living in a society of information overload, and express it using techniques and materials of Japanese art.

私の創作の軸になっているのは、日本人が持っている仏教的感覚です。
多くの日本人はハッキリとした仏教徒ではありません。
しかし、私たちは生活の中で身近な存在として神様仏様を信じています。
情報過多社会における人間のあり方を問う存在として、不思議に身近にあり続ける
仏教からモチーフや思想を抽出し、日本美術の画法や素材を用いて
「今」を表現しています。
 
近年の作品では、注射器に絵の具を入れて描く画法を用いており、
日本美術に受け継がれている平面的なレイヤーに立体的な質感を待たせることで独自のヴィジュアルを生み出しています。
