Tomokazu Matsuyama

BIO

美、日兩國輾轉的成長背景使松山智一對自身的文化脈絡產生質疑和省思,更在後來促使他在創作風格和主題中突出民族和個人身份問題,並試圖解析我們社會環境的「自然混沌」:文化透過旅行、網路,以及其他交流和聯繫方式的流動,日益與另一個文化糾纏在一起。松山筆下的創作雖然基於世界主義的概念下建構的新世界,使用的具體圖像及符碼依然出自日本文化。

The growing background of the United States and Japan has caused Tomokazu Matsuyama to question and reflect on his own cultural context, and later prompted him to highlight ethnic and personal identity issues in his creative style and theme, and to try to analyze the "Natural Chaos " of our social environment.: A culture is increasingly intertwined with another culture through the flow of travel, the Internet, and other forms of communication and connections. Although Tomokazu's creations are based on a new world constructed under the concept of cosmopolitanism, the specific images and codes used are still derived from Japanese culture.
