Hiroshi Mori (JPN)


Born in 1977 in Tokyo, Japan
Lives & works in Tokyo, Japan


In 2000, Hiroshi Mori graduated from Tokai University. He worked as a game creator and a car painter and a Tokyo public school teacher afterwards. And he resigned all work in 2011 and entered Master's course of Tokyo university of the Arts. He studied the painting production by the new media. In 2013, he completed Master's course of Tokyo university of the Arts. Influenced by the Rimpa School of traditional Japanese painting and the modern animation culture, Japanese artist Hiroshi Mori vigorously tries to combine traditional art with modern expression and technologies, aiming to express the anxiousness towards reality and hopes for the future by images full of rich symbolic metaphors. Hiroshi Mori likes to make new attempts. During the creation of Religious painting series, he tried using digital technologies to inject gold base tone into the artworks without using real gold. After multiple tests, a new artistic technique is born. As for his interest in blending new technologies into his art works, he explains, “As a contemporary artist, I want to make use of the latest technologies as a testament of living in this age.”
