FANTASISTA UTAMARO

Fantasista Utamaro is an artist, animation director, illustrator, graphic designer, textile designer, and art director. His style is expressed by ultra pop and technicolor with explosive energy that make his works very distinctive.

He is a Japanese artist born in 1979, based in New York and Tokyo. He is part of the new generation of entrepreneurial young Japanese artists whose vision defy boundaries. In his art works, Fantasista Utamaro reflects his three conceptual themes: celebration, freedom and limitlessness. They give us the opportunity to see universal matters from different angles. For him, to acknowledge the value of daily life is an important process. The style of his art works show a pattern which endlessly increases, and is influenced by the Japanese pop culture such as animation and Manga. This endless multiplication of patterns shows the infinite imagination and the ego of human beings. To imagine something you can not see is the core of creativity. This is the reason he continues to create these patterns.
