MARCH 2017

MTV RE:DEFINE recently had the pleasure to visit Tomokazu Matsuyama (Matsu) in his studio as he geared up for the opening of his solo show, “Oh Magic Night” with the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Foundation (HOCA). Matsu’s work explores themes of mythology, fictional history, and abstraction, channelling both ukiyo-e and American pop culture. 

Matsu has also generously donated the painting, It’s Not Up To You to this year’s MTV RE:DEFINE auction. The painting can be bid on here.

Here are selected shots from Matsu’s Brooklyn-based studio. Enjoy.
