Artist: Makoto Taniguchi / by john cheng

Makoto Taniguchi, 32-year-old Japanese artist created works that wants viewers to feel lost and contemplative. He's created a series of work that requires you to move around and interact with the work in order to see clearly the beauty that is hidden behind blurry strokes of paint.

When I try to draw the interior ‘images’ which though invisible to the eye surely do exist, the dazzling brightness and the ephemeral nature of that existence surges forth, and I start to think about my own ideas of ‘existence’ and my views on life.
