Mitsumasa KADOTA | JAPANESE


I was born in Shizuoka in 1980. In 2002, I graduated from the Painting program at Tokyo Zokei University. From a unique Japanese perspective, I explore conflicting ideas and their boundaries as seen from the social aspect of the “now”.I explore this idea via the colors of my paintings, the expressions of my brushstrokes, and within the space of my works. My major exhibitions include Art Today 2007: Mitsumasa Kadota + Eri Watnnizbe, Sezon Museum of Modern Art, Nagano; 26th Outstanding Rising Artists Exhibition, Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Museum of Art, Tokyo (2007) ; and The Vision of Contemporary Art 2011, Ueno Royal Museum.
I also received the 23rd Holbein Scholarship.
