ARTIST

Hitoshi Tsuboyama

Painter, artist. Born in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan in 1981. In 2010, completed the master's program at the graduate school of Tokyo University of the Arts. Based on his original concept of space, he is searching for a new expression by color surface. Through symbolic motifs such as portraits and the iris of the eye, he is creating work with the theme of questioning the ability of people to identify things. The new work "Complex Code" is a new series that embodies "Image to scan the iris" with an artificial color scheme not found in nature.

1981 Born in Miyagi, JP
2010 Completed Master’ s Degree Program at Tokyo University of The Arts
