PROFILE

Born in Tokyo in 1977, SHUN SUDO learns art by himself while wandering around the world.

A variety of “living creatures” born from the delicate touch of ink painting reminiscent of Japanese, the pop taste of the street, and the inspiration from movies, music, anime, and sports…. Paintings with a world view that cannot fit in one genre attract attention.

After his first solo exhibition “PAINT OVER” in 2015 was held in NY, his artwork was used as the cover of the gallery guide “BLOUIN GALLERY GUIDE,” the following year. Since then, while holding solo exhibitions in Japan and overseas, art walls drawn in New York, Miami, Ginza, etc. have drawn people’s attention. He has also collaborated with companies such as NIKE, Apple, and SONY, and his creative activities continue to inspire the art scene not only in Japan but around the world.


ARTdemic

Can’t verbalize. No need to put into words.

Therefore, I paint.


Why do you paint?

Tell us the background of this painting?

What’s art for you?

I paint just because I want to, but for some reason people ask me for words.

There is no reason. No context nor interesting story behind it.

I don’t consider myself doing art.

There may be a message to it but that’s not the reason why I paint.

I paint what I want to, the way I want to, when I want to.

When I’m painting, I don’t feel like I’m myself, yet again I guess it’s me and my true self.

That feeling cannot be verbalized and I don’t even give a damn about trying to describe it in words.

I paint because that moment gives me irresistible happiness. Therefore, I paint.
