Yoshiyuki Koinuma

Website of Yoshiyuri Koinuma

My work is influenced by Computer Game, Biology, Science Fiction, Nature and Japanese culture. It invites spectators to use their imagination and enjoy themselves, evoking their surreal imagination, made of fantasy world and outer space. The past few years, I’m making ” Reincarnation Series ” from my earthquake experience on 11th of March 2011 in Japan, “Grandfather Series “, ” The Universe Series ” ,” Daily Paintings” and “Collage Works” . I started a series of new work from 2015 contemplating relationships between human and animal in modern society. Inspired by media and daily conversations. The Painting ” Portrait with animal “, a theme that has been reoccurring since ancient times. I paint it on canvas by oil and oil pastel.
