Ryoki KURASAKI

Ryoki KURASAKI

Overview

Ryoki KURASAKI was born in 1995 in Fukuoka, Japan. He concerns himself with the symbol of fire as the beginning and end of life and the ambiguity of its two sides. To put this interest into practice, he combines fire with portraits and still lifes in oil paintings. Through burning the eyes of the figures in his paintings, he expresses the blind sense of distance between life and death in today’s society, and attempts to approach the “values of the present” surrounding death. In recent years, he has continued his core creative concept by developing a series of three-dimensional works made of melted wax.
