Genki Yamashita


Genteki Yamashita was born in 1998 in Kanagawa Prefecture. He graduated from BA Oil Painting at Tama Art University. Yamashita explores the possibilities of diverse materials such as charcoal, crayon, oil and waste wood from everyday objects in his paintings, drawings and sculptures. By drawing lines and surfaces as if in direct contact with the screen, the distance from the screen and the physicality of the act of drawing remain on the screen. The medium that accumulates on the screen is like a pool of water that accumulates during a tour, and is formed as a work of art with unpredictable phenomena, instability, inevitability and coincidence in the production process. By wearing the accumulation of time through Yamashita’s handiwork, the work has a sense of weight, including an appearance and shape caused by artifice.
