Lives and Works: Yokohama
Kosuke Masuda is a Japanese artist and Buddhist Priest based at a temple in Japan. He studied Shingon Esoteric Buddhism in Mt. Koya Japan.
Masuda’s paintings, rendered in strikingly rich, vivid pigments in a variety of techniques and applications are a constantly evolving expansion of his intrinsically connected Buddhist and artistic practices, revealing both the micro and macro at once.
Suggesting imagery and associations from the mind and experience of the viewer, only to again morph back into the swirling, void of abstract form and colour, Masuda’s works are deep, subconscious explorations of his inner self, simultaneously combined with complex evocations of molten, golden islands, blue oceans and an ever-expanding universe.
