Suda Masahiro is an artist, based in Nagoya, Japan and currently Associate Professor of Nagoya University of Arts. His works have been widely exhibited in Tokyo, Nagoya, Cologne, Berlin, Vilnius, Bangkok and Beijing. In his early works, Suda obsessively explored the power of colour ‘yellow’ through yellow objects, yellow painting and yellow rooms to give emotional impact and dislocation. His recent series of installation of painting works, ‘Colourscape’, began in 2000, demonstrates his continuing interest in exploring the relations between colour/composition and time, memory and emotion. Suda’s signature monochrome and disguisedly simple imageries offer complex and multiple ways of looking at the world.
