Iori Kimura | Miyagi, Japan
He started street dancing when he was a student and moved to Tokyo. After more than 10 years of living on his own, he began to suffer from depression due to a combination of various factors. He returned to his hometown and started drawing pictures (from Septem-ber 4, 2022), which he had never tried before, as a way to recover from his depression. He has been experimenting with various painting materials since then, including pencil, oil pastel, and watercolor, but he is particularly interested in acrylics, which allow him to ex-press his work vividly, and has made acrylics the focus of his work.
Instead of copying the subject, he expresses his own values, spirit, and thoughts by mate-rializing on the canvas the formless images that come to his mind.
