In my art practice I create an idealistic landscape that reflects on a psychological condition that deals not only with utopian ideals but also morbidity. In the mind there is a constant shift between tension and relaxation, which weaves its intimate narratives and a sense of ambiguity into the work. Using a phenomenological and simple process I depict deeply private and intimate spaces, with a sense of compassion.

Koshiro Akiyama was born in Tokyo, Japan and studied at Camberwell College of Arts, MA Fine Art, Painting (2020-2021). Akiyama is now based in London and received a BA and MA in Japanese-style Painting at Tokyo University of the Arts. The artists printmaking techniques are highly influence by Japanese painting and culture. The artist explores in the creative process, utopian ideals but also morbitity,  whilst demonstrating complex texture's created on the papers surface.
