To me, the cultural appeal of hip hop is how rappers use their rap as a vehicle of self-affirmation, and to overcome physical poverty or mental conflict through expression.
In a similar way, I aim to find my own sense of self-affirmation through expression in my painting.
Hip hop is the collective name given to the culture formed by the four elements of rap, DJing, dance, and graffiti, and I want to be able to live as a player in hip hop culture through my painting.
I post new works on my Instagram: @ryo-kuwamiya
