Taizo Kuwahata



I try to express my vision towards the texture and image of life in my works. Instead of seeing a specific motif, I rely heavily on my own feelings and imagination to express my understanding of the existence of human being. As the maker of the work I am rather unconscious during the process of making. I would say my works visualize my psychological state and my understanding towards life.
