Toward the next era of conceptual art.

Kohei Kyomori is an artist who works primarily in two-dimensional art as a “modern decorator. His goal is to create powerful works that appeal to human vision and pass them on to the next generation.” My goal is to transcend time. By interpreting and updating the decorative culture that mankind has built throughout history in my paintings, I hope to create works that will move everyone.”

Tell us about your style of “applying decorative culture to art.
I want to interpret the history of decorative culture and update it. My works may be paintings that introduce a new style of decorative culture, regardless of country or region. I want everyone to think, “Wow! I would like to create works of art that will make people think, “Wow!

 

You’ve also been involved in graphic design and fashion. Has that experience influenced your work in any way?
My roots are in graphic design and fashion, so those skills are very useful to me, especially when it comes to composition. Also, my roots in Japanese graphic design are in printmaking, and I use giclee and other printmaking techniques, so that also influences my work.

 

How do you create your works?
I start with a sketch and then simulate it digitally. It is important to have elements that come from unexpected places, such as when I connect materials together. After the digital simulation is complete, I output the work with giclee prints and finish it with UV processing. My works may not look delicate and elaborate, but they actually are.

 

 

There are several series in your works, which is the most important series right now?
One of them is a series called “Aharebi”. I started making this series for the Olympics, and it contains the message that we want to overcome discrimination and prejudice against people of different cultures and backgrounds.
Another important series is “JAPAN BLUE”, a series using indigo dye. I believe that everything is unique, even if you are a sociopath. I believe that a society with diversity is one that does not fit into a conventional framework. That’s why the theme of this series is “affirmation of imperfection,” which I think is very Japanese.

Many of your works have a strong message, don’t they?
-Yes. The most important thing in creating my own works is to transcend the times. What I often think about these days is universality, as in “moving to the eye. I put a lot of skill and time into the decorations, but I am sure that everyone will be moved by the energy that each piece has. I like things that move me without having to explain them, and I think that’s wonderful. I would like to explore what I can do with my background in graphic design and fashion, both in the world of contemporary art and in the world of conceptual art after Duchamp. Wherever I am in the world, regardless of my occupation or ethnicity, I want to create work that everyone will say, “Wow! I want to create works that will make everyone say, “Wow!
