Oscar Oiwa

Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1965, graduated from the Department of Architecture at the University of São Paulo in 1989. After graduating from the Department of Architecture, he worked as an artist at the same time as he worked in an architectural firm in Tokyo. In 2002 moved to New York where actually live and work.

Oscar's work shows his worldly story full of stories on the canvas. With its unique sense of humor and imagination, Oscar traveled to and from São Paulo, Tokyo, and New York. He travels a lot and explores his self-identity rooted in multiculturalism as he moves. He uses detailed depictions and bird's-eye composition to discover social issues from news reports and networks. After careful investigation, he displays them on a huge screen. His works are collected by many museums in Japan and abroad.
