    Infinity Japan Contemporary Art Show 2023, a contemporary art fair in Taiwan, will be held at Hotel Royal-Nikko Taipei from Friday, August 4 - Sunday, August 6.
    DMOARTS presents the works of four artists, HAYATO MACHIDA, Ifuku Kazuhiko, Saneyuki Matsumoto, and Chiharu Yakushigawa.


    Born in 1995 in Okinawa, Japan. He began painting on his own, and when he was 21 years old, he met Yuken Teruya in New York, where he was studying abroad, and began working as an artist after returning to Japan. His paintings are composed of elements inherited from Japanese and American pop culture, subcultures, and local culture, which deeply influenced him while growing up. The ambivalent feelings that form the concept of his work are born from his doubts about his own sense of "being alive" and his thoughts on the social and political situation at times. The white sprinkled throughout the work is the presence that emerges when you reach a point where you feel like disappearing, and it represents the confusion or neutralization of psychological ideas and biological instincts.

    Kazuhiko Ifuku
    Born in 1979. His works are characterized by colorful colors and relaxed lines.
    Major works as an illustrator include artwork for JR's "OSAKA POWER LOOP" wrapping train, FRED PERRY catalog, New Balance T-shirt design, Converse wedding limited edition sneakers, TSUTAYA book cover, and high school English textbook "All aboard cover of high school English textbook "All aboard!"
    In addition, goods collaborating with Ultraman, Yoshimoto, Doraemon, Minions, and Sanrio were released from the general merchandise store ASOKO and became a hot topic.

    Saneyuki Matsumoto
    Born in Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture in 1988.
    Since 2017, he has been working as an illustrator, and after 2022, he will switch to being an artist in order to create more conceptual works.
    He currently exhibits his paintings at galleries in Japan and abroad.

    Chiharu Yakushigawa
    She has developed his own unique abstract paintings based on the theme of the relationship between "pairs". In her "Right Hand and Left Hand" series, in which she applies paint directly to her right and left hands and paints by hand, she uses pigments she has mixed himself to express a mixture of the individual and the individual with each other.
    In addition, she continues to present a variety of methods of expression for each work, such as her "Knock" series, which focuses on the act of knocking, a signal before entering the other's territory, regarding the relationship between the self and others in a society with advanced social networking services.
