Omschrijving werk

Artist statement Masaaki Oyamada is a multidisciplinary artist, all around graphic designer, stamp maker and workshop leader. One of his principle interests is incorporating craftsmanship into contemporary conversation. Exploring personal and artistic truth is a major theme in his work. About stamp works For his stamp works and projects, he attempts to locate a portrait of a person by visually translating dialogue between himself and an interviewee, which results in a unique drawing that is then translated into a stamp. The outcome of the stamp ‘portrait’ resembles a tiny and unique world, in which the person in question lives and operates according to his or her own processes and laws. He also organizes many pop-up events.
