Akira Ishiguro
Ishiguro is a self-taught artist whim began his career in 2008. When he was painting the faux-marble surface as an artisan, he was interested in the uncertainty of the concept of “Genuine” by painting “Fake”. He presents his artworks that delve into “the interval of the torsion of the truth and falsehood” from a unique perspective on the surface. In recent years, he has made the Marblesque painting series depicting the landscape of Anthropocene, as the surface of a new stratum age.
