    kamonpoi

     

    Born in 1974. Lives in Funabashi City, Chiba Prefecture , Japan.

    Currently, while working for a company, I am working on drawing and collage works. Mainly publishes daily works on instagram.

    "kamonpoi" comes from a nickname when I was a student.

    Draw on mini notebooks, notepads, envelopes, food boxes, paper bags, post-it, etc. using ballpoint pens, fluorescent markers, pencils, colored pencils, posca, and makers.

    My collage works are characterized by giving damage and stains by pasting, peeling off, pasting peeled ones again, drawing on them, and painting images.

    My main theme is "Bure" (in English, it is called "Shake"?). “Bure” means that the person himself / herself doesn’t know what to do, and therefore changes his/her opinion and attitude. The reason I take it as a theme is that I think the essence is that people's thoughts and actions are not consistent.
