Playing with positive and negative forms, Tomomi Morishima creates oil impressions of space, figures and architecture before dissolving into the abstract. Vibrant colors bring a playful touch to the final canvas.
“I begin to paint at first without a plan and see what happens,” he says. “At that time, it looks like a pure abstract painting, and that inspires me.”
Born in Paris and raised in Japan, Morishima attended the Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe and has exhibited his works throughout Germany, where he currently resides.
