ART: TOMOYOSI SAKAMOTO

I’m currently fascinated with the up and coming Japanese artist Yoshimoto Sakamoto. Sakamoto who graduated from the Tokyo University of the Arts is part of a new generation of Japanese artists that carries style of J Pop artists from the 90s. Sakamoto’s work can be described as a post-manga form of expression. For me Sakamoto’s images make me wonder if they intended to capture pure innocence or ironic jab on society. 

Sakamoto’s usually shows at ARTLAB in Tokyo.

I'll say a mix of both a jab and a display of innocence. Something that's almost lost in this cruel world.
