Tomohiro Inaba

Tomohiro Inaba is a young sculpture prodigy born in Japan in 1984. His striking one-of-a-kind sculptures drawn with galvanized iron, stop time to capture this one-second during which movement stands still. 

Brilliantly seizing the ephemeral of the instinct in motion, Tomohiro scribbles nature with mighty hands & a soothing perception.

Artist statement “I would like my creations to be “the sculptures that keep engaging with the viewers through their imagination”. This is because I consider one of the ways of art is to be instrumental in bringing the viewers “a fruitful time” to fantasize about something that eyes cannot see. For this reason I always pursue figures that inspires people’s imagination. I leave “blanks” in my works in order to create sculptures that engage with the viewers through their imagination. In addition, by capturing the moment of one figure transforming into another, the art works start to tell us stories that evoke the flux of time.
