"I would like to express my love for nature, human being, mystery, and you; so that all of visitors can feel and understand that art is love, art is for everyone, and art can be medicine that can give quality of life to everyone." - Yosuke Nakano
Yosuke was born on October 6th, 1987, and raised in Fukuoka, Japan. As a child he discovered his love for all things creative, such as painting and crafting, and took best art award in child art competition. He also loved movies and became so enthralled by the actors that he watched in those movies that he joined a theatre company so that he could develop his art and express himself in acting. He travelled overseas to Los Angeles to study acting, art, psychology and philosophy. During this time, his art work was shown at exhibition by Santa Monica College. He participated in many film productions and graduated from Los Angeles City College. Then one day he read a book – ‘Today’s Art’ by Taro Okamoto, a Japanese artist – and it turned his whole life around. He realized from reading this book that in fact he was himself living as an artist. He declared that he would consciously live the rest of his life as an artist, and since encountering that amazing book, not a day passes without creativity. He currently lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand as both an artist and a company employee. He held "1st Art Discussion" at Bangkok Art Culture Center (BACC), organized by 'Art Laboratory' that he established in 2013. He is pursuing avant-garde art and is expanding his creative field inside and out, and travels around the world seeking “art that is not called art”. He has opened two websites in 2014-2015- : http://yosukenakano.com (JA/EN) and http://art-geijutsu.com (JA) to expand art mind for everyone. "This will be the first solo exhibition of his career, and he has some new projects that he is moving on in the near future. I believe this exhibition will connect and develop art culture for both Thailand and Japan."
