Takahiro Kimura from Tokyo Japan has a unusual brand of grotesque collages of human faces made up of cut up photographs that “strive to show the complicated nature of the human spirit through peculiar physical distortions.” Though the majority of his works are vibrantly colorful and presented through static images, it seems his work black and white brought to life, complete with a bizarre soundtrack reflects the “conspicuously depict karmic suffering and ugliness of human beings” he strives to display in his work on an entirely different level.
Takahiro claims to keep his own emotions apart during the creation of his work as he strives to focus primarily and balance and form. Rather than intentionally trying to conjure an emotional response out of the viewer, He explains that if you feel a particular way, “it might be projections of what you have inside. The broken faces might be mirrors to reflect your emotions.” Damn.
