    Artist, born 1990 in Chiba, Japan, graduated from Tama Art University, Department of Graphic Design in 2014.
    The concept of the production is to explore and create a therapy by Digital Detox.
    The pixel representation is intended to "materialize information," and the idea of "painting the representation as if it were a spray or brush" gave rise to a technique called "virtualspray.
    Attempt to detoxify the information overload from outside and inside.
    He has had a solo exhibition "Virtual Spray" in Korea (LKIFgallery ,2022), a solo exhibition "Deep paper" in Tokyo (PAGIC gallery ,2021), participated in an art fair at "art stage osaka" (DMOARTS ,2022), and held a live painting event at " Livepainting" (OIL by Bijutsu Techo ,2020). Participated in group exhibitions in Tokyo, Kyoto, Shanghai, etc.

    Hal Osawa
    Born in 1997 in Tokyo, Japan. In his previous works, he has created works by running a once-drawn work through a copying machine and then drawing a printed version of the work. The copy machine is a symbol of mass production. He has been creating his own bugs on this machine. From this point on, the artist "drew" and "printed" at the same time by dropping ink directly onto the glass part of the copier that performs the exposure process.
    This made it possible to visualize the act of dragging itself, uniting the body and machine where they had been separated.
    The silver foil base makes light the support, and the use of CMYK suggests a photocopier printing process.
    Solo exhibitions include "ERROR" (MEDEL GALLERY SHU, 2022), major group exhibitions include "KUA ANNUAL 2022 'in Cm¦ Ghost, Labyrinth, Multiverse'" (Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, 2022), "Hajimari" (ARTDYNE, 2022), "SHIBUYA STYLE vol. 15" (Seibu Shibuya, 2021), "In between" (SkiiMa Gallery, 2021) (@Kutsuna Miwa)

    Mie Takahashi
    Born in 1994 in Hokkaido. He creates three-dimensional works inspired by the lines and shapes of doodles he casually scribbles on a daily basis. Major exhibitions include "Floating Forms" (ANAGRA/Tokyo) in 2019, "Unknown Forms" (KYOTO ART HOSTEL kumagusuku/Kyoto) in 2020, and "REPEAT" (B GALLERY/Tokyo) in 2022.

    Rooo Lou
    Born in 1988 in Osaka. After working as a designer, he shifted his method of expression to illustration. Since then, he has provided artwork for apparel brands and advertisements. In recent years, he has been mainly creating artworks and actively showing them in Japan and abroad.

    Art Fair Asia Fukuoka has been held since 2015 and is the only art fair in the Kyushu, Chugoku, Shikoku and Okinawa regions.
    Since Fukuoka has geographically and historically served as a window to Asia, we have adopted the theme "To be a bridge between Japan and the Asian art market" and aim to create a global art fair that introduces artists who will carry the future of Asia on their shoulders, introduces the attractiveness of domestic culture and art to Asia, and revitalizes the Asian art market.
