Kotaro Machiyama is a Japanese artist who paints captivating abstract pieces. Kotaro works predominantly in acrylics, creating bold, colourful canvases inspired by the beauty of time and space. We love the alternative universe that the artist creates with colour and shape; each canvas sucks you into its own little world, overpowering both the eye and the mind.
The artist works as both a painter and an illustrator, having majored in Dye at the Tokyo Zokei University of Art & Design.
Kotaro has won a number of awards in Japan, including the Daikokuya Contemporary Art Award and the International Art & Design Visual Art Award at 6F Citizens Gallery.
