Lives and Works: Fujinomiya, Japan
Takatomo Tomita went to the United States to 18 years old and studied art in the United States until the age of 28.He spent his time mainly in Philadelphia, studied sculpture and graphic design at university and graduated sculpture department in 2001.
While acquiring an Outstanding Student Award while studying abroad, participating in various exhibitions while continuing to produce works after graduation. He held a solo exhibition at the Fleisher Ollman Gallery titled Post-Art In Philadelphia in October 2005, and returned to Japan in August 2006. After returning to Japan, he lived in Fujinomiya City, and he has workshops, group exhibitions and solo exhibitions.
When I met Tomita who has a long experience overseas, I get a feeling of being very natural living.It is made to feel again what to do in order to become the most like himself without being conscious of various external pressures.
After returning home, Tomita himself thought about "an ideal society" and incorporates it into production as its concept. A comfortable society where treasures families, neighbors, and many people gather together with relaxation.Targeting that, Tomita draws illustrations one character each day, and distributes the illustrations that he relates to people who have some connection in some way. It is a project called "All things must pass", and he lives the unity on that motto.
The work of Tomita therefore has a work ability that never makes the viewer bored. It has the possibility to increase the value more and more according to the future success and is one of the artist who cannot keep an eye on future trends. It would be a good idea to choose his work as the first art to decorate in the room.
