Yu Kanuma

Yu Kanuma

Yu Kanuma is a self taught artist and a medical doctor who lives in Tokyo.
He continues painting everyday as if he were traveling, taking a walk, or writing a letter to old friends. What he sees, feels, and all the things that he’s experienced in everyday life are connected to his art. He aims to draw cells of living things and shapes of shapeless things, such as pieces of a sound and drops of light.

During his medical student days in 1999, he had done live paintings, designed flyers for events, and began to visit contemporary art galleries and was inspired by great artists. In 2002, he and his friends formed an art group, Ehonkaigi, and did some exhibitions and art events. Through these experiences he found his love for painting. By the time he graduated from medical school in 2003, he decided to continue what he really wanted to do.

Since 2013 he is working as a hospital doctor and has designed a hospital logo for his workplace and posters for several conferences.

He restarted his art activities in full scale since this past April and joined JACT in June 2020.

  1. It’s abstract but not unfriendly, which is a perfect description of Mr. Kanuma’s profile, in which he paints as if he were writing remembering an old friends. Each shape and color is filled with warmth, joy of life and aches.
    I feel as if I have suddenly found a glimpse of someone’s life.
    I’m looking forward to seeing your new works

Since 1999, in his medical student days, he started to create some artworks while doing live paintings and designing flyers for events. And from that time on he begins to visit a lot of contemporary art galleries and was inspired by great artists.

He and his friends formed an art group, Ehonkaigi, and did some exhibitions as well as art events. Through these experiences he found a love of painting. And by the time he graduated from the medical school in 2003, he had decided to continue what he really wants to do. In particular, when he lived in Kyoto for 4 years, he was able to focus on painting. Then he moved to Tokyo and started a family.

Nowadays he paints with his sons.
Since 2013 he works as a hospital doctor and involved in rehabilitation and home healthcare. In addition, he exhibited art works of hospital staff and patients in the hospital, and designed a hospital logo and posters for several conferences.

He believes that art is always connected to our lives no matter where we are and what we do. We just have to see it and feel it.

He has restarted his art activities in full scale from this past April and joined JCAT in June, 2020.
