YOSUKE SASAKI (Painter)

Biography

English | Japanese

The world of Yosuke Sasaki’s artwork is one of creatures based on irregular shapes created by chance. He leaps across freely with his paints, creating abstract shapes and taking a good look at them. He then uses them to fluidly draw what comes to mind. Since childhood, he would often see animals and insects in abstract shapes, and took enjoyment in imagining peculiar creatures. He depicts a world that relies on the unconscious. When people encounter mysterious things in nature they try to create meaning in their own way, which is how various kinds of arts have been made. Sasaki experiences this origin of art through his work and feels a strong presence within. His art is born from his cosmic view that perceives humans as just one part of nature.
