Hiroki Tsukuda is a Japanese contemporary artist famous for his unique collages. This Japanese artist, who is colorblind, meticulously constructs dense collages with the aid of a computer, combining images found both online and in his collection of printed materials. He then draws the collages by hand at a large scale in ink and charcoal on paper, adding drips of paint and other seemingly impromptu gestures to complete the monochromatic images of worlds within worlds.
Architecture, nature, and graphic visuals fuse together in Tokyo-based artist Hiroki Tsukuda‘s incredible artwork. His large-scale drawings are an impressive collection of spontaneous watercolor and calligraphic strokes, paired with a structured, architectural-like composition of lines and spaces. A strong sense of nature is also poetically present, with a plethora of green living structures carefully curated in the gallery space often found to accompany it.
Hiroki Tsukuda’s two-dimensional works rendered entirely by hand are often conceived via a process of digital collage that combines a collection of his own drawings and snapshot photographs. In producing his work, he initially manipulates various aspects such as the color, orientation, and resolution of each image that serve as his source material, thereby once destroying their existing context.
Tsukuda’s has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, Gunma (2019); Capitain Petzel (2018); Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, Aachen, Germany (2017); and Nanzuka, Tokyo (2014), among others. He has been included in group exhibitions at the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2019); Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong (2019); Jack Hanley Gallery, New York (2016); and Brandenburgischer Kunstverein Postdam e.V., Potsdam (2015), among others.
