Kazuhiro Aihara Solo Show
We will be holding a solo show of Digital Artist Kazuhiro Aihara.
Kazuhiro Aihara's works, which are influenced by street culture, including graphics, music, and fashion, are digital media, but their textures and colors give them a sense of depth and create his unique worldview.
In this exhibition, Kazuhiro Aihara will present a dynamic new work that combines his past production style with technical elements supported by NEORT.
Please come and see the new expression by Kazuhiro Aihara.
Kazuhiro Aihara is a Japanese digital artist based in Tokyo.
He began studying graphic design on his own around 2005, and in 2010 began his full-fledged career as a graphic artist in fields such as advertising design, fashion, and interior design. Since around 2014, his works have been at the International Poster Triennial Toyama (Japan), the Moscow International Graphic Design Biennale (Russia), the Brno International Graphic Design Biennale (Czech Republic), the Trnava Poster Triennial (Slovakia), and the Lahti International Poster Biennale (Finland). He has been invited to international exhibitions such as the Ecuador Poster Biennale (Ecuador), and his major works are permanently stored in the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art & Design (Japan) and the National Moravian Gallery (Czech Republic).
Since around 2018, he has shifted his base of art activities overseas and has collaborated with many up-and-coming young visual artists. Although he is a freelancer, he has signed contracts with major global companies Warner Music (UK, Australia) and Universal Music Group (USA), and has worked for international music artists such as Jess Glyne and Perto, and merchandise for Trippie Redd.
Notably, from 2019 to 2020, he worked on the first graphic campaign visual for the collaboration between NIKE Global (USA) and fashion brand SACAI (Japan), which attracted the attention of the scene. Provides artwork to ACRONYM (Germany & USA) also Perks And Mini (Australia) etc. In the same year, he held a solo exhibition and collaboration at Dogs, a concept store produced by Japanese artist KOHH.
In 2021, he completely transitioned his art activities to a “Digital Artist” and has been presenting crypto artworks on Tezos and Ethereum overseas marketplaces (Teia, Objkt.com, Foundation, SuperRare, etc.). He explores a style that combines traditional painting techniques, such as original textures, brushstrokes, and color palettes, with expressions such as pixels and glitches unique to digital art. His style is diverse, such as "PSY," an abstract painting series featuring liquid animation, "FAXCE," a portrait series that makes full use of digital textures and brush strokes, and "BFK," a series that reconstructs internet memes based on the digital history. His unique works have been collected by XCOPY, a legend in the digital art world, and are attracting attention in the early NFT scene. He is a rare community builder on the Internet and is one of the few Japanese people who deeply understands the history and trends of the world's digital art through strong connections with top artists. He defines his style as "Uncharted Pixels," and as the name suggests, he continues to create digital art that doesn't exist on the map every day.
