"Wherever we go there exists boundaries that divide objects and areas. We create these borders unknowingly as we go about our daily life, comparing and discriminating. Finally noticing these boundaries, these divisions dimly remain like lingering light and after image of a wave." -OZ
About the artist
Born in Nagano Prefecture in 1986, Yamaguchi attended Nagano National College of Technology for Architecture in 2003. Following his graduation in 2007, he continued his education at Nagaoka Institute of Design, where he studied Architecture and the Environment. His focus has since shifted from architecture to painting. Yamaguchi has actively exhibited internationally since 2007. He was the inaugural winner of the 2016 Ronin | Globus Artist-in-Residence Program. Yamaguchi often integrates process and product in his live painting performances. From the live painting at the ruins of Ueda Castle in Nagano to Central Park in New York City, Yamaguchi’s original technique draws and enchants crowds.
True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist. - Albert Einstein
