    ART OSAKA WALL by APCA", a spin-off project of the art fair "ART OSAKA" which was canceled due to the new coronavirus, will be held at the "Yamakawa Building" located in Sonezaki, Osaka, where DMOARTS will also exhibit. ART OSAKA" has the longest history among the ongoing art fairs in Japan, and has been a hotel-type art fair specializing in contemporary art, but for this fair, it will step out of the hotel and take place in the "Yamakawa Building," which is located near the old gallery district of Nishitenma, not far from the old Omatsuchocho, where the entire floor will be used as exhibition space. From DMOARTS, we will introduce three artists, Saki Matsumura, Takuro Tamura, and HIN. We hope you will enjoy the exhibition at the end of the year.

    Saki Matsumura
    Born in Nagano, Japan in 1993, he completed his master's degree in painting at Kyoto University of Art and Design, Department of Fine Arts in 2017. Lives and works in Kyoto. Exhibits mainly in the Kansai region. In recent years, also does commission work, such as installing works in offices.
    He attempts to visualize abstract concepts through acrylic paintings, silkscreens, and other painting works with complex layers and a three-dimensional feel. The works create the illusion of a relationship between the ground and the figure, and the sprayed matiere emphasizes the unevenness of the surface, creating a cognitive gap between the viewer's perception and the reality of the work.

    Takuro Tamura
    Born in 1989 in Osaka, Japan, he graduated from Kyoto University of Art and Design, Integrated Arts Course in 2016. Currently based in Kyoto.
    By creating works from different angles of things that most people have a common perception of or are unconscious of, he aims to create expressions that affect the viewer's daily life, for better or for worse.

    Born in Chiba, Japan in 1990, he graduated from Tama Art University's Department of Graphic Design in 2014.
    By using pixel representation as an "abstraction of information," the artist attempts to antidote information overload and expresses a sensual and relaxed world.
    He has held live painting events at "Livepainting" (OIL by Bijutsu Techo, Tokyo, 2020) as well as solo exhibitions at "Virtual Wall" (Curiosity Small Room 2 by H.P.FRANCE, Osaka, 2019). Y gion x Yoshimoto Art" (Y gion, Kyoto, 2019) and "Aki Tsukamoto x HIN" (Void, Tokyo, 2019), as well as group exhibitions in Tokyo, Shanghai and other cities.
