Sota Sakuma

The impact of Sota Sakuma's works lies in the connection of a poetic visual art with elaborate details and in perfect hand-crafted work. The author often emphasizes the importance of contradictions that enrich him, and he also works with humor and tension. Sota Sakuma's paintings blur the distinctions between the real and the ideal, the immanent or the transcendent, the factual or the symbolic. Instead, they offer a crack of truth between the work and the spectator as well as the joy of pure painting and the uniqueness of the image. The spectator experiences, listens, reads between the lines and reveals the signs of characters and symbols fully present in the author's work.
