Akira Ishiguro

Akira Ishiguro

[Born 1974], in Yokohama Kanagawa, Japan Lives and works in Saitama.

Akira ISHIGURO is a self-taught artist whim began his career in 2008. When he was painting faux-marble surface as an artisan, he was interested in the uncertainty of the concept of “Genuine” by painting “Fake”. He presents his artworks that delve into “the interval of the torsion of the truth and falsehood” from a unique perspective.

His major artworks include “A Steganographic Romance” (2009-) series in which his oil paintings ask the ideal of the human body in the art history.

The “Gravitational Field” (2011-) series, which draws fragments of nature encompassing the whole world as a landscape painting without perspective, is a figure exploring the texture of genuine marble.

The “Marblesque” (2015-) series, which has a surface layer developed oppositely, captures the glossy sensation of `the metamorphism by heat’, which multiples the marble-generation process and the reality of the creation of its own, and turns metamorphism on the canvas. It can be said that it is a painting of an imaginary scenery.

Moreover, the “painting of Marble” (2018-) series can be interpreted as a painterly expression as well as the visual representation of `Anthropocene’, a new stratum age in geology.
