Motomichi Nakamura's work seeks to portray the anger, the fear, and the sadness that transgress at a subconscious level through our minds during nightmares. These are represented visually as creatures, seemingly soft and cute, and at times abstractions of this form. The use of black and red ink for drawing seems to be for primal expression, the very basic palette helping to give distinction to the murky complexities that are the farthest reaches of the human mind. As a whole, Nakamura's work is a visceral exploration of the unknown.
His work has been exhibited at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, the Museu Oscar Niemeyer in Brazil and Winzavod - Moscow Contemporary Art Center. As a VJ he has performed at the Centraal Museum in Utrecht, New York’s MOMA, the Edinburgh
International Film Festival and La Gaite Lyrique in Paris.
Motomichi currently lives in Quito, Ecuador.
