Shogo Miyasaka is a contemporary and textile artist involved in several exhibitions, and collaborations with other artists. While he also does photography, painting, and drawing, his main form of art is mixing dyed cloth with other elements, typically clear resin. Some of his artwork has a clear concept however the overarching theme of his artwork is very abstract, such as emotions or a sense of presence. While also experimenting with other materials and art forms, he seeks to pursue a common theme throughout his work. Initially, he started off drawing what he wanted to make for himself. Soon after, he started drawing what his friends wanted him to draw for them. This change of purpose behind creating his art formed the basis of his artistic activities today. “At first I only made art for myself, but soon I found joy in creating art others appreciate, connect with, and are impacted by.” He finds that the greatest feature of his art is the expression of his dyed fabric. The combination of clear resin and how the fabric is layered evokes a sentimental and nostalgic feeling from viewers. "I want to visually express emotion and the feeling of memories.” Often times, people’s memory is slightly different from reality as these memories are attached to their own personal emotions. Miyasaka recalls an experience where this became clear, "When I went back to my hometown in Hokkaido, I was surprised by the size of the sky.” This experience led him to realize how humans will see the world through their own preconceptions, with eyes blinded with emotions, and forget to see things as they are. His art is heavily influenced by this idea of finding the truth behind the visual facade. Miyasaka’s artwork does not always use resin as he is not in pursuit of a single technique. He does not want to be bound by the limitations of techniques to express his ideas and thoughts. He hopes to continue expressing himself through different forms of art.
