I confirm a thing which I cannot understand just by looking at it through use of pictures and additional lines. During that process, I found that what has
emerged in front of me forms an artwork. This means, I think, that there was something which had to be output from my head. I don’t need to output
things if I’m satisfied with them. So, something that urged me to draw was there. I wondered whether or not this is the nature of creativity then.
Although the meaning behind these oil
paintings by Atsushi Koyama is somewhat
ambiguous, it’s easy to appreciate the
exactness of his paintbrush that colorfully
and elegantly depicts mechanical diagrams
mixed with anatomical illustrations. Born in
Tokyo, Koyama holds both a BFA in art from
Tama Art University and a Bachelor’s degree
in mathematics from Tokyo University of
Science, so it’s no surprise to see a
confluence of both backgrounds in his
artwork. You can see more paintings from
the last few years over at Frantic Gallery.
