Tetsuya Toshima

Tetsuya Toshima

Born: 1975

Hometown: Japan

Based in: Tokyo

 

I am always competing against time.  

Time governs both life and death.  

The basis of time, past, present, and future, act as proof of one's existence.  

Therefore I sometimes fall into the illusion that I am being swept away in the flow of time.  

Time has a universality to it as it ticks by and bestows to my works a myriad of indefensible feelings and stories.  

I strive to create that universality in my works.  

Time is always fluid.  I find the entangled fragments of stories in that fluidity and turn them into my works.

I am active in the fields of television, graphics, illustration, fine art, interiors, advertising, and fashion.
In order to create works that present a universal consciousness of time, I use a
wide variety of methods and mediums to visually communicate messages and conceptual ideas.
