Ryo Koike



ABOUT

Ryo Koike is a Japanese self-taught painter based in Berlin. His artistic practice entails a translation of inner worlds, which include emotional, preconscious and translucid realities as well as charming arrangements and figurations His artistic practice permeates preconscious realms, fairy tales and the emotional movement of mind that translates into surreal landscapes and fusions that combine beings of this world and that of the supernatural.

The painting itself becomes a shift gesture in which the subject dissolves, and the paper absorbs the painter as if he were the essence of fluidity, temperature and colour. A dark, enchanted and multi-layered world is interspersed with recurring themes and motifs, each signifying distinct worlds within the body of Ryo’s work.

Within its frameworks, fantasy and reality coalesce – as they spark, transfix and interweave collective yet deeply personal imagination.
