Ryota Unno

Ryota Unno

Born: 1977

Hometown: Shizuoka

Based in: Tokyo

From afar, Ryota Unno’s works resembles traditional Japanese scroll paintings, but upon closer inspection, they are really the artist’s humorous depictions of contemporary society and modern life.

Painting with traditional Japanese medium such as iwaenogu (mineral pigments) and gold foil on Japanese paper, Ryota is influenced by genre paintings of the Edo period in Japan three centuries ago.

Ryota’s works often feature richly detailed cartoon-like people engaged in a range of activities in various story settings. The artist likes to capture the little things that are easily forgotten in our fast-paced everyday life. Looking at his paintings will rediscover these captured moments and make one recall these little pleasures of life.

For Ryota, humor is the most important theme of his works as he feels that it exists within everyone in various degrees. Laughter gives energy and it is this quality about humor that the artist would like to express in his works.

Ryota graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Japanese Painting from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. He has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Japan as well as Hong Kong, USA, Brazil, Italy, Taiwan and Singapore.
