ABOUT

Mayshu Fukamachi

I am a Paper painter. 
 
After decades working behind the scenes of Tokyo's boutique fashion scene,
I decided to become an artist at the age of 53 and started to portray with paper.
 
By using only paper, I hope to draw the ultimate expression of art.
   
I create pictures, but instead of paint, I create with colored paper.
I cut the paper into tens of thousands of pieces, sometimes even into a million pieces, with a cutter and ruler, and using a pair of tweezers and a touch of glue, layer them together one by one. 
 
The unique texture of the paper painting changes expression with every shift in lighting, adding depth and character.
 
 

僕は絵の具の代わりに色紙をカッターと定規で切りピンセットで貼って絵を描きます。

紙だけで表現できる究極を描いています.

一片の色紙が数十万集まって一枚の絵になる。僕はこの不思議さに魅了されたのです。

その独自の質感はライティング等により絵の表情を変え深い奥行きを生みます。

表情を出すためなら何百万でも貼る。

それが僕の描き方
