About the work:
Pin Pon Pan Pon 12, Original Artwork by Kubota Fumikazu.
Kubota Fumikazu arrived in Melbourne from Japan in 2003, instantly falling in love with Melbourne’s architecture. His hard-edged, abstract paintings are meticulously applied using a range of colours sourced from vintage Japanese design colour books.
“My work takes influence from disparate sources – antique Japanese design, arcade and video games, early 20th century abstraction, and historical colour combinations… I use acrylic paints and canvases that I stretch from Italian raw linen, and the quality of the materials I use are important aspects of my practice,” says Fumikazu.
About the Artist:
Kubota Fumikazu’s series of compositions are a celebration of materiality of linen, colour and simple forms. Much of his work is informed by a selection of 1970s era wooden children’s building blocks, heavily focusing on the circle and sphere which represent the sun and the dawning of a new day. In this series, Fumikazu has played with exposing and hiding the beautiful raw linen.
