Keisuke Masuda's works use watercolor and color pencils and are simple portraits showing his unique atmospheres and soft images.
All models are real people, picked among Masuda friends or from magazines. They are all casual and fashionable, as they all came out of fashion magazines.
Many portraits were drawn in the long history of painting, but since the appearance of photographic technology, new values for portrait as a contemporary art are needed.From the characters of Masuda's work you cannot feel a specific feeling of loneliness or joy. However, Masuda himself reflects the impression of that person and characters that only he can draw are included in his work.
The overwhelming strength of his recent public exhibitions, which received the Tomio Koyama's award at the Tugboat Awards and the First Prize at the Yokohama Art Competition are a testimony to his ability. Keisuke Masuda 's work, which has the potential to increase its value even more with his future success, is fascinating and funny if you are interested in fashion.
