ABOUT THE ARTIST
Masaya Eguchi is an artist of Japanese origin born in Mie (Japan). He studied Fine Arts at Tama Art University in Tokyo.
In his works, the artist combines materials such as wood and paint to create geometric and mostly square compositions, which remind of traditional Japanese paper sculptures. Masaya's work invites us to explore a new universe in which order and chaos come together. In order to create his works, Masaya contemplates the world calmly. He makes sketches of his vision and puts them aside for a while. Later, he comes back to them and explores their artistic potential. To the artist, his works can be hanged in any direction, since each angle provides different visual experiences.
Artig Gallery presents an original collection of mixed media works created by Masaya. All works are signed by the artist and will be delivered with a certificate of authenticity and are shipped directly from the artist.

IN MY OWN WORDS
“I am always interested in altering the viewers’ states of perception. In my works, I use organic and abstract strokes that give movement to my artworks. My intention is to create a new perceptual process. I also intend to provide a reflexive space for the viewer so he or she can deeply reflect on my work. I feel that my work is a device to transmit feelings and alter the traditional way of perception.”

Graduated from Tama Art University in Tokyo with a M.F.A. in Fine Arts (1996)
