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.
