Ryota Matsumoto

The Clash of Colors Emanates Waves of Pleasure

The artworks of Ryota Matsumoto develop and demonstrate the hybrid/multi-layered process, where varying scale, juxtaposition of different forms, intertwined textures/tones are applied to reflect the spatial conditions of our ever-evolving urban, natural and ecological environments. They are created to act as the catalyst for defining speculative changes in our notions of cities and infrastructures.
The drawings explore a hybrid drawing technique combining both traditional media (ink, acrylic, and graphite) and digital media (algorithmic processing, scripting and image compositing with custom software).
