Toshiyuki KONISHI

(Born in Hiroshima, 1980. Lives and works in Hiroshima, Japan)


Toshiyuki Konishi continues to paint portraits that are based on the artist's private family photographs and familiar people's photographs. Figures are painted with dynamic brush strokes and vivid and rich colors, that almost impossible to identify race, age, and gender. Although figures are painted in symbolic form and from multiple angles, physical structure and composition are carefully planned and depicts intimacy and tension between people among groups. His recent exhibitions are YOKOHAMA TRIENNALE 2017: "Islands, Constellations & Galapagos" Kanagawa, Japan (2017); "Our traits", AIKE DELLARCO, Shanghai (2017); "Collection 2 - Diary", 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan (2016); "Nostalgia and Fantasy: Imagination and Its Origins in Contemporary Art", The National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan (2014); "The Way of Painting", Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, Tokyo, Japan (2014) and more. He was nominated as the finalist for the Prudential Eye Awards in 2016.
