Masahiko Kuwahara
Japanese, b. 1959
Follow

Masahiko Kuwuhara’s paintings are at once eerie, humorous, and cute. According to the artist, his purpose is “to draw a part of this world that overflows with a strange idea.” Kuwuhara leads a secluded life and does not own a computer or television, but receives his news from the world via newspapers and fliers, from which he sometimes draws inspiration for motifs or titles. He is best known for his simplified forms, soft colors, and an almost cartoon-like or child-like style. His recurring motifs include young girls and animals, which appear variously despondent, deformed, and isolated, referencing themes of estrangement contemporary life. He also makes sculptures exploring similar motifs and themes.
