working and living in berlin since 1997. as photographer,painter,musician,writer, doing installation and sculptures,and experimental design.

one of the core ideas going through my work is improvisation, based on proper research,thinkin,insight,connecting the visible with the invisble,looking into the nature of reality.i see myself in the tradition of art in that sense, that i think its important to question life,to think,and develope the
human abilitys on all levels and work for understanding and create awareness to the complexity simplicity and beauty  we can find on this planet.we are able to grow into a true human beeing if we can dream,and focus.everyone emerged from  the same source like anyone and anything else.as the latest researches in the field of quantum mechanics proove, behind the material world is a deep web of infinite relations in between processes throughout anything that is known so far. thus we have to give up the idea of a static knowledge,and the idea of a describable reality.

even more, multiple realitys have to be verified through observation,and accepted. talk in between subjective recipients is one way to find  a common ground. building reality.beein part of the  mysterios dream. to happen.in the end silence is a very easy approach. yet i like to talk in order to share .everyone can be student as well as teacher.

thus we are all really deeply connected, and need to be rememberd to our true nature,  the qualitys of understanding, sharing,and experience the bliss of human existence,and the love and complete acceptance of diversity in the cosmic creation the individual approach is limited not only by the sensory perception,but also through education,cultural identity,and subjective filters, that can block a wider perception of the general process and happening. its necessary to work for global peace,and a sustainable future with no exploitation and artificial boundarys. art is just one way to express this.

PAINTER, MUSICIAN

www.kurihara.bandcamp.com

In his large acrylic paintings Takuya Kurihara investigates our human universe through lines and colours. His powerful paintings arouse the viewer’s curiosity through their wealth of details, and the viewer is sent on a voyage of discovery. Like a kaleidoscope new shapes and forms constantly appear before the viewer’s eyes. In Takuya Kurihara’s neat and light drawings the lines appear to be almost floating in the air – here the artist’s Asian roots become visible.

Chuuu

KYOTO 1973

PAINTER, VJ, MUSICIAN, DESIGNER

http://chuuu.xxxxxxxx.jp/

Chuuu was born in Kyoto Japan 1975.His base is now in Berlin.Because of his environment of childhood he had a strong awareness of freedom,creation and making things by himself. He was good in his hands since he was a child,cutting his rubber-robots into pieces and put different pieces together and making a new robot,uncoil a small motor and extend it to make a faster motor,create a small light for playing games in the dark.Since his uncle was an artist he had many chances to see paintings and printings,spontaneously,he started to draw pictures and manga by himself.While majoring manga in Kyoto Seika University (the only university that has manga major in Japan) he bought a computer, learned himself how to use applications and studied design on his own. After graduation,he worked independently by designing and painting. 2003 moved to Berlin and now he is here as an artist.

About his works

Chuuu,the theme of his works are nostalgia-ism and reconstitution.In his paintings and drawings,influenced by Lautrec,Beardsly,Saul Bass,Japanese Ukiyoe and Leonardo da Vinci’s sketches,he expresses nostalgia by using techniques such as scraping and scaling paints,use dry impasto material to make crack surface,dye 60 years old paper with tea and use flat touches and intentionally unshaded image.Adding modern elements of manga and anime on those,that is his work.Mostly the background image is blank to accentuate the line of the body or shape.He uses Acrylics,Gouache,Aquarelle,Ink,Colored pencil,Tea,Oil,Magazines and more.
In his video works with the same theme,he made an animation system by using the technique zoetrope(invented by William Horner in 1834) and stroboscope,a turntable that DJ uses and a video camera combination.” Turntable Animation” is the name of this animation system,he turns his 12 inch record shape hand-drawing,collage,printed works on a turntable.He has been performing this “

Turntable Animation”performance in many different places.Above all,the loop animation of circularized notes is a video performance that is like spinning around the musical notation that has been originated in Europe from the 17th century and John Cage and Marcel Duchamp on a DJ turntable.
