Masaru Shichinohe


Masaru Shichinohe, born in 1959 in Aomori Prefecture, Japan. He graduated from Musashino Art University, College of Art and Design, major in architecture. After working in architectural firm for three years, he started his career as professional painter. The atmospheric pressure on Masaru Shichinohe’s planet also approaches zero. Apalpable stillness pervades his tableaus of young boys and girls, glassy-eyed rabbits, mechanical baubles, celestial bodies, led zeppelinds, and clocks eternally set at 12 o’clock. Even demonstrations of movement like the trajectory of a billiard ball are stopped in mid-air at different points in t, recalling the Italian Futurists’ experimentations with multiple exposure photography. They are stutters in Shichinohe’s otherwitse frictionless space.


b. 1959, Aomori Prefecture, Japan

1981 Graduated from Musashino Art University, College of Art and Design

Currently lives and works in Tokyo
