Yumikio Sameshima

After traveling abroad for a while, I became aware of Japanese culture and regional characteristics that cannot be separated from my own identity.
Some of my works are related to Japanese culture and regional characteristics, such as seismic waveforms, an idea in Shintoism and a traditional painting technique that was often used in old Japanese paintings called “Yamato-e”.

I also create installation art which is deeply related and not able to be separated from the exhibition space both physically and conceptually by using the features the elements of the site.
