Born in Tokyo in 1981. Completed the graduate program in painting at Musashino Art University in 2007.
Watanabe’s paintings are distinguished by their seamless blend of fantastical imagery and organic forms, which move back and forth between abstraction and representation.
In his recent series, he seaches for people’s names on the internet and produces multi-faceted,multi-layered portraits combining elements of the found images.
Organic forms and planes of color that overlap with their surroundings evoke the constructivist compositions of Cubism.
