KAHO KATAYAMA

Based on my own view of life and death and my own experiences with illness, I have been creating works based on the themes of "life and death" and "physical and mental health".

When I choose internal organs and skulls as motifs on the theme of death, I paint them in vivid colors. This is because I don't want viewers to have a general image of internal organs and skulls, grotesqueness, anxiety and fear of death.

And I have been challenging to draw things that I have never drawn before, such as still life, landscape and emotions.
