    Information

    Yuma Yoshimura a.k.a. YUMANIZUMU was born in Tokyo in 1980. After receiving certification as a printer in Tama University (2004) and having his first experiences in the professional field customizing shoes, decided to focus his art in painting.

    A remarkable moment in his career came after his first solo exhibition in Germany (2011), when he was invited as artist in residence in Soweto (South Africa), a city built under apartheid to house the black African population, in order to participate in a mural project. An intervention which continued with subsequent solo exhibition in the capital, Cape Town, under the title "Yin and Yang Is Into You", that received a great reception.

    In his works he reflects, through color and other primitive forms that he hasfound in his travels, the hustle and bustle that surround us in big cities like the one he grew up.

    Currently he has his studio in Tokyo, but works around the world. Among his best known series are "People Who Can Not Refuse" and "African Fusion".

    Now he comes to Montana Gallery Barcelona with "The Burning Silence", a series of works and images that submerge us in a special cosmic world, distant and tiny, to which the artist invites us next April 4, and this way share his experience.
