Kakinuma Hiroki

PROFILE
Born in Tokyo.2011 Graduated from the Musashino Art University after finishing master's course in oil painting.
He is good at depicting a grandpanoramic world which develops between foreign materials and human beings,and abnormal days mingled withquotidian affairs.
Untraceable “Bird Man” vs Human being, huge monster destroying towers and buildings vs daily life,city life vs suburban life etc.. They co-exists in mysterious harmony.
What he paints may be the scenefrom special effects shooting orour relationship with its shooting, or we, the tourists, strolling over indecent chaotic Asian quarters.
In our modern time we live in the hustle and bustle of the citybumping each other but somehow managing to live in harmony,in spite of many contradictions.His paintings may well be a diorama reflecting our real life.
