Yoshiの独創的なスタイルが投影された作品「Change of mind」は撮影した人物写真を基と、街中を自由に動きまわり、首からぶら下げたカメラのオートシャッターでランダムに撮影した画像を、多重露光で重ね合わせ撮影し、Yoshi、カメラ、そして登場人物との共同制作である。人物を、風景と重ね合わし、その人物の表情に一番マッチする画像を選択している。Yoshiの気持ち次第で生まれる作品は、毎回同じではない。これらの作品は時代や環境の変化により、常に変わっていく心を移す鏡となる。

Yoshi’s “Change of mind” manifests his uniquely projected artwork style to present a portrait. Walking freely around the city with his camera hanging from his neck, he sets the camera on auto shutter to take random pictures. Those pictures are then layered with multiple exposures to create an art collaboration with Yoshi, the camera, and the main character. The person is layered with the background and an image that best matches their expression. Created based on Yoshi’s emotions, his artworks are never the same. These artworks are mirrors the reflect his heart and the constantly changing time and environment.

Yoshi

“How do you see this world?”

Yoshi was born in Okayama Prefecture, Japan, and now lives in Osaka

Graffiti was drawn on a street wall. When he first saw that graffiti, Yoshi was a junior high school student. He was too shocked to say anything. Thinking about it now, he realizes that it was the moment when he stepped into the world of expression.

Yoshi left college and began to explore photography. He studied photos at the long-established photo gallery DOT in Kyoto. He took landscapes photographs and portraits with a film camera. There were a lot of nice photos, but none of it impacted him like the graffiti he saw in those junior high days. He could not find pleasure in the confines of ordinary photography. This being the case, he decided to create his own images so that they would excite as that graffiti had. 

In 2014, Yoshi found himself attracted to works made with multiple exposure. That discovery triggered the opening up of his world of expression, and he began to create works using digital cameras.  Ever since, he has maintained a distance from conventional photography, and instead takes pleasure in the creation of works of art such as paintings that are seemingly invisible in photos. His imagery sometimes represents a fusion of people and plants, sometimes the world captured by the camera’s own eye.

Yoshi’s work creates a unique world based on the two themes of blending the truth and expressing another world, and projecting a world that cannot be grasped by the human eye, asking the world questions.

Is the world you are looking at a real picture? This point of view also exists, but, as for you – how do you see? To Yoshi it may look thus and so, but what about to you? And so on…. 

Yoshi has created a style that impacts more than the shock he received when he encountered that graffiti and first stepped into his world of expression, in order to shock the people of the world.
