Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"First time Satoshi felt he could paint what I want. Came out the image as he drew, did not think about anything. Looks like geisya or a bit like expressionism. But he doesn't know who she or he is. Maybe himself, maybe her, maybe the one.

Brush stroke like calligraphy. It is a single stroke calligraphy painting."

Artist Profile

Hometown: Tokyo

Based in: London

Tou Toa is a young emerging artist, who currently works between Japan and UK. His art is centered on the creative interest for inner beauty and love in their forms and characterized by the combination of medium with social and environmental themes.

A timeless and ageless reality

Inspired by people, emotions, dreams, spirit and creativity, Tou Toa is looking for all things soulful to guide his artistic creation. After graduating from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, his career started gravitating around the creation of works with a strong realistic expression. Finding the truth and representing the world, the real and unreal, the physical and non-physical is, therefore, at the base of his artistic research. A timeless reality that the viewer is able to empathize with, through the involvement of our body, mind and spirit.

Going beyond the surface

Tou Toa does not believe in categories, which is why his works are always going beyond the mere dimensional space, exploring and creating a world people normally do not witness. Through different media, such as film, performance, music and fabric he interprets the philosophical concept he creates, by bringing the viewer outside of the traditional framework.

Multi-media success

In his career, Tou Toa has exhibited in several galleries and art fairs in UK and Japan. One of the most important experiences for the artist is the Asia Design Prize, for which he created a video art conveying the idea of human body, a code representing the human’s inner beauty.
