Yuichiro Kikuma explores various methods of creating painted images which often involve use of found objects or home devices instead of traditional painterly methods. He challenges the limitation of imagination by facilitating chances to create unexpected images. His recent works includes series such as 12 Variations using spray bottles, hair driers, laser cut off-cuts and radiators.
Kikuma was born in Chiba, Japan and is currently based in London. He studied for a BA in Fine Art Painting at Wimbledon College of Arts and an MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins. The Muse Residency Program Alumni 2019
