about

KENJI ESUMI
Fine Artist / Illustrator

He is influenced by his Japanese and quarter Russian heritage.  His inspiration draws from Zen and Russian avant-garde modern art that merged into his unique creations.
He first studied Computer Science in his college days and he saw the loss of humanity caused by technology, so he gave up Computer Science to pursue a life in art.   The crisis caused by technology gave birth to his first artistic work. Despite the opposition he faced from society telling him he had little potential, Esumi entered the art world as an illustrator and has not looked back.The evolution of his work is rooted in his cultural origins.  

日本とロシアのクォーター。双方のアイデンティティである禅と、ロシアアバンギャルドをかけ合わせ進化させた独創的なスタイルの創作をする。学生時代に情報工学を学んだ事で、テクノロジーの問題をアートに取り入れる。原点からはじまる”進化”を創造し、社会に対して、”1つの可能性”を提示するイラスト活動を行なっている
