Daisuke Fukunaga


    Daisuke Fukunaga (b. 1981, Tokyo) currently lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. He graduated from Tama Art University in 2004 with a BFA degree in oil painting. He won the first Kinutani Koji Award sponsored by the Mainichi Shimbun in 2009.

    Daisuke Fukunaga’s work is centered around life’s ordinary moments,  familiar objects that are often overlooked. A sense of fiction enters the picture plane through his approach of “representationalism:” a magnetic distortion of the canvas and the use of fantastical, pale yet vivid colors not found in the depicted, real world. With   postures and melanchol or relaxed expressions, each canvas is permeated by a quiet world,  a profoundly dense and distinct zone captured from a micro-perspective beyond the contours of the canvases.

    His recent exhibitions include: Fertile Break, Antenna Space, Shanghai, China (solo, 2022); Beautiful Work, Nonaka-Hil, Los Angeles, US (solo, 2022); Fifteen Painters, Andrew Kreps Gallery, New York, US (2021); Labor, Tomio Koyama Gallery, Tokyo, Japan (solo, 2020); The Alpha and the Omega, Uriwari Sekitei Park, Yamagata, Japan (2020); island, Art Laboratory Hashimoto, Kanagawa, Japan (2019); Cool Invitations 4, XYZ Collective, Tokyo, Japan (2017); Sayonara Jupiter, 356 Mission, Los Angeles, US (2017); Taguchi Hiroshi Art Collection – A Walk around the Contemporary Art World after Paradigm Shift, The Museum of Fine Arts, Gifu, Japan (2015) and among others.
