"When you believe in something, religion will be born. Do we not live with belief in our everyday daily life? I think belief is invisible. For example, the sound of the trees, the chaos of people coming and going, the sky, in ourselves. Wherever, I want to continue to live in faith while closing my eyes gently." - OZ Keisuke Yamaguchi

About the artist

Born in Nagano Prefecture in 1986, OZ Keisuke 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 his contemporary paintings 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. Recently, Keisuke Yamaguchi has found inspiration in ukiyo-e, carrying the spirit of the floating world into his contemporary paintings.
