Kinugasa Taisuke Profile

About the artist
Taisuke Kinugasa

Though suffering from autism, at an early age he taught himself how to paint and began producing artworks. He has exhibited works in a large number of individual and group exhibitions, and has won awards at a variety of art competitions.

What distinguishes him as an artist is a striking feeling for color that springs from his rare innate perceptive ability. His particular prism-like internal sensitivity mechanism acts to take in perceived light, amplify it, convert it directly into a rich aggregate of colors, and express the result before the eye.

On the screen, the high-purity colors create contrasts and rhythms that give rise to an autonomous feeling of movement, and this sense of movement, coupled with the freely decorative composition of the screen, evokes in the viewer a sense of fresh surprise and carefree pleasure.

This artist and his world of light are almost too much for us to drink in. His magical world of color, comfortably detached from the memories and interpretations of others, constitutes a revelation from a world of light, a revelation that has been received by this artist alone and which results in paintings that are little less than blessed.
