SHINTARO OHATA

Born in Hiroshima, 1975.
Shintaro Ohata is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world.

Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata (previously) currently has two new sculptural paintings on view at Mizuma Gallery in Singapore. Ohata places vibrantly painted figurative sculptures in the foreground of similarly styled paintings that when viewed directly appear to be a single artwork. In some sense it appears as though the figures have broken free from the canvas. These artworks, along with several of his other paintings, join works by Yoddogawa Technique, Enpei Ito, Osamu Watanabe, and Akira Yoshida, for the Sweet Paradox show that runs through August 10th

❝ I think I was in denial for a long time about Josh’s decision. I kept thinking “he feels that way now”. I loved working with him so much and the relationship on screen is so rich and developed. Over all these years we’ve gone through so many story lines where we seemed to be coming apart and then we were back together again stronger than ever. It’s like being portrayed as the healthiest marriage in the show, so it was like my husband telling me he was going to leave. I just didn’t want to hear it.

"The work on social pain [shows] that some of the same neural regions that are involved in physical pain are involved in social pain, [which] can be very validating for people. For anyone who’s felt the pain of losing somebody or who’s felt the hurt feelings that come from being ostracized or bullied, there’s something very validating in seeing this scientific work that shows it’s not just in our head. It is in our head because it’s in our brain. It’s not just in our head, there is something biological going on that’s interpreting the pain of social rejection as something that really is a painful experience."
— Fascinating Edge conversation with UCLA social psychologist Naomi Eisenberger. For a poetic testament to this idea, see Shane Koyczan’ s spoken-word masterpiece “To This Day.”  (via explore-blog)
