Nakamitsuki / Nakamitsuki

      Contemporary artist Mitsuki Naka has grown up as a digital native, with a diverse set of values ​​that are not bound by existing rules, using "music" as a motif, and themes of physicality and dialogue after spending time in a hospital due to hemiplegia in his early teens. I create my works using my everyday tool, the iPhone. The production process allows art to appear anywhere by converting it into data, but once the image is turned into a work, it is immediately deleted from the data on the "iPhone". We are creating new forms of art that have never existed before. Naka concentrates on his emotions in a moment and depicts them intuitively, but by turning them into physical works, he shares his values ​​with the viewer and forms a dialogue with them. The instantaneous saturation and atmosphere expressed from the music, as well as the smooth and powerful lines, give an impulse to the viewer.
