ARTIST Shotaro Sanada / Sanada Syotaro
Born in Hyogo Prefecture in 2000. He mainly creates large-scale paintings that extract elements from landscapes and create extremely abstract forms. The expression of thoughts based on aesthetic research and the characteristic brushstrokes that condense the visual passage of time into simple compositions leave a strong impression on the viewer. He has received numerous awards including the 2022 Geidai Art Plaza Award, Art Olympia 2022, Tokyo University of the Arts ART FES 2022, and Art Students STARS. Recent solo exhibitions include "ACROSS" (Bumpodo Gallery/Tokyo/2023) and "from" (art brewing gallery - haco/Tokyo/2022), and he also actively holds live paintings. He also provides numerous artworks and designs. Currently a 4th year student in the First Laboratory of Aesthetics, Department of Art, Faculty of Fine Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts.
