Koichi Enomoto
1977 Born in Osaka. Lives and works in Chiba.
Selected recent exhibitions include “The 6 Way to the Psychic JPN” (HAPS, Kyoto, JP) in 2015, ” 21 Century Standard Bearer” (TARO NASU, Tokyo, JP), “The Way of Painting” (Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, Tokyo, JP), ” Graphic Novel” (Arario Gallery, Seoul, Korea) in 2014, and more.

My painting is a reality.
However, this reality is the image of the world, which is created under the globalized perspective in the contemporary world where we cannot have the common sense of values and each person has their own un-exchangeable standards.
I gather good and evil, truth and falsehood, ancient and modern from the overload information to create the world image.
Each individual has their own peculiar actualities.
I always see and hear the public realness that news organizations are reporting, shutting myself in my own actuality.

My painting is my private myth, like a vision, rising from the relations between my own and public reality.
