CHIKARA MATSUMOTO

images and activities

CHIKARA MATSUMOTO
Painter, Video Animation Artist

I draws and takes the picture of this drawing that penetrated the light, and I aims at the pictorial representation of the image in mind similar to shamanism. I collaborate with specific musician on the image of video animation. We have a lot of live performance and exhibition without making arrangements about our image and music each other. And I initiates workshops of animation using my own devices"Emakimono Machine", the Hand Scroll Viewer. These devices supports my activities as existence like a friend with children at school, hospital and art museums.
