Akira Ishiguro

Akira Ishiguro

[Born 1974], Lives and works in Saitama, Akira Ishiguro is a Japanese artist who was born in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan.

He is a self-taught artist who started his artistic career in his mid-thirties. His debut exhibition was held at the nca | nichido contemporary art in 2010. His artworks have subsequently been exhibited at both local and international art fairs.

The exhibition at LOKO GALLERY in April 2016 made a big impact on audience. Influenced by the history of his hometown Yokohama, Ishiguro has been creating artworks using his remarkable painting skills and techniques, on the themes of “the difference between ‘genuine’ and ‘fake’ and what truly determines the value of paintings”.

In the series of marble painting, the artist created large scale paintings of his own craft through simplicity to create questions about the tastes and value of painting. The works instigate the perception of the majority of people towards contemporary painting, using valued materials to create the transfer of its value through painting and to the aesthetic of abstract psychology.
