Michihiro Matsuoka Born in 1969 in Japan, Matsouka finds inspiration from his childhood memories and deteriorated devices. Creating worn out devices that fuse animals and fish with machinery, Matsouka primarily uses stone clay for his work, but will incorporate other materials that seem to be suitable. The sculptures are meticulously finished with acrylic paint, which aids his desire to express the progression of time. Matsouka’s work has been featured in twenty-five exhibitions throughout Japan.
The work which insists on progress of time visually.
I produce a machine had a good use of, a rusted machine, an old device.
It fuses with an animal and a machine.
I express it as a flying boat and a floating object.
