Score Fresh (Mixed media)
The artist known as SCORE FRESH suddenly began posting numerous pop art pieces on Instagram in the Autumn of 2018.
In the modern era with its rapid technological progress, he feels that the depth and warmth of his interwoven works are needed today, which has led him to launch fully into producing art. His mysterious and cool style soon earned him rave reviews from around the world.
He says the roots of his works are pioneering pop artists like Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Robert Rauschenberg, made famous for his combine painting, as well as Otomo Katsuhiro, the Director of “Akira”, and that Japanese anime culture also had a great influence on his art.
SCORE FRESH began to expand the scope of his activities, participating in group exhibits, mostly in Tokyo, from December 2018.
The characters, derived from the concept based on a worldview of fairy tales, are somehow both strange and attractive, and have a mysterious power to attract people from children to adults to view them. They remind him of the worldview of the pictures books he read as a child, which communicate a certain nostalgic warmth and emotion.
The combination of this worldview depicted using original techniques of printing the underlying image again and again, which deliberately blurs its lines, as well as a balanced structure & margins and a sense of color arrangement that deliberately restricts garish colors, creates a remarkable atmosphere for all his works. He also utilizes state-of-the-art printing technology to reproduce a unique silkscreen-like texture.
SCORE FRESH uses manufactured fireproof fabrics which have the advantage of strong fire resistance and longer life spans, which he creates with the owner of the work in mind. He combines black frames with luxury mats, which accentuates the entire work, thus rendering a sense of purity and fashion. He wants the viewers to immerse themselves into the depths of these simple yet captivating and mesmerizing images.
SCORE FRESH hopes that people from all over the world can enjoy each other from their hearts, regardless of gender, age, nationality or religion, through his works. He has many fans not only in Japan but from around the world, making him an artist that is attracting global attention.
He plans to exhibit overseas, hold solo exhibits in Japan, and take up fashion design in the future. He released his first solo album “DEEP DREAM” in May 2017.
SCORE FRESH is currently releasing his music through iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, LINE and other platforms.
