While growing up in Japan Motomichi Nakamura used to imagine that there were monsters everywhere. As an adult, he became fascinated by mythical and cryptozoological monsters, which are often considered as representations of the primal fear of death and societal anxieties. Over the years, his work has evolved to make use of a variety of different media including Internet art, animation, video installation, painting, live video mixing, and lately projection mapping, all of which allows Motomichi’s visual representations to merge with their surroundings. His palette is limited to three colours, black, white, and red and consists of simple, bold shapes: By eliminating complexity, ideas can communicate more strongly. Motomichi’s work has been exhibited globally in numerous museums and galleries including the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; Winzavod ‒ Moscow Contemporary Art Center; MARCO, Monterrey, Mexico; and the Taubman Museum of Art, Virginia, among others.
