KINOSHITA GAKUDO
– JAPAN –

Osaka based artist, Gakudo has a passion for abstract resin art.

He often uses glossy paint to create a strong sense of colour. The different colours react with one another to form a visible texture on the surface. Thanks to the perfectly mixed resin base, the paint dries to a smooth, highly reflective surface which integrates the viewer with the work. The untraditional use of glossy paint reflects the unique nature of the pieces.
