Wataru Yamakami by Hiroshi Wada

Wataru Yamakami

Born in 1981 in Kochi and raised in Nagano. Representative of Kuroyama Shachu Co. He lives and works in Chiba and Indonesia. Using painting, sculpture, installation and drawing, his theme is "proliferation and transformation" and the connections that arise from this. He attempts to depict a new way of being in the real (creative) world by linking our daily lives to the macroscopic and microscopic realms that cannot be visualized. He received the Special Prize of the Taro Okamoto Award for Contemporary Art (2009), and the Runner-up Grand Prix and Audience Award of the Tokyo Midtown Award 2013 (2013).
