Fantasista Utamaro is a Japanese artist based in Brooklyn, New York. he is part of the new generation of young enterprising Japanese artists, whose vision defies borders. He brings an ultra-pop sensitivity to each project with an explosive energy which is undoubtedly his own.
Fantasista Utamaro reflects these three concepts of his theme: celebration, freedom and unlimited in his artistic work. They should give the opportunity to see universal things from different angles. He believes it is important to recognize the value of everyday life.
Very close to Takashi Murakami with whom he worked for ten years, he produced clips including for Pharrell Williams, in collaboration with Murakami.
The style of his artworks is a continually motif. He thinks everything can be cut, like the photograph and the stomach. Each life also has a recitation.
Utamaro fantasies seize his model which is constantly amplified as an endless imagination and as a human ego. To him, nothing can exist unless it is cut. However, human beings can unconsciously imagine being cut apart from the pattern. Imagining something that you can not see is the heart of creativity, of imagination. That is why he continues to do the pattern.
To Fantasista Utamaro, Japanese universality is pop culture like animation and manga. If these cultures appear on completely different occasions, observers can rediscover something and see themselves subjectively.
