Influenced by an upbringing in Japan and America, the artist’s large panels merge elements of both Eastern and Western culture to a global canvas of intricate details.
In Matsuyama’s work, traditional icons are positioned within a context that is not limited to the time or place of their origin. The figurative paintings take inspiration from a variety of subjects, including Japanese art from the Edo and Meiji eras, classical Greek and Roman statuary, French Renaissance painting and post-war contemporary art.
