HIROKI TSUKUDA

Creating Worlds Where Reality And The Unrealistic Coexist

Architecture, nature and graphic visuals fuse together in Tokyo-based artist Hiroki Tsukuda‘s incredible artwork. His large-scale drawings are an impressive collection of spontaneous watercolour and calligraphic strokes, paired with structured, architectural-like composition of lines and spaces. A strong sense of nature is also poetically present, with a plethora of green living structures carefully curated in the gallery space often found to accompany.

Hiroki’s works make use of many common motifs such as cityscapes and architecture, with natural landscapes of wood and waterfronts, while simultaneously incorporating drawn geometric planes and symbolic elements. Hiroki’s gallerist NANZUKA explains, “True to his word, Tsukuda’s work reveals a perspective of the world in which reality and the unrealistic coexist.”
