Shu YAMAGA

Yamaga was born in 1984 and has been drawing since his early childhood. Yamaga began working as a hair artist, where he worked in New York for eight years from 2010.

Then, while traveling, Yamaga was painting pictures of Africa. After returning to Japan, he started his artistic career.



In his creative process, Yamaga explores the balance between opposing subjects, such as: representational and abstract, East and West, heavy and light, masculine and feminine, imagination and reality, shadow and light, conscious and unconscious etc.

During his travels in South America and Africa the artist used to sketch the different sights he would observe. He developed his own sense of beauty and expressed it on canvas. His wish is that his artworks leave some trace in the memory of the viewers and have some good impact on them.
