Akihito Izumi

In Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, the protagonist descended deep into a well and stayed there to solve a problem. Murakami said he does the same on making stories. After starting from his originality, he descends into his well and reaches to the universality of our common unconsciousness, or, as termed by psychiatrist Carl Jung, the “Collective Unconscious.”

As a comic writer, I experience it. When I immerse myself into my stories, the characters start to speak autonomously. When the story is complete, I find my subconscious notion has been spoken naturally by these characters.

Since 2008, I have shifted my focus on painting, and apply same the approach. The motifs in my work are uncharacteristic, everyday things. They are the things that we see every day with joy, agony, or a neutral mind. I want to represent these figures in a simplified manner, evoking the layers of emotion that are embedded in myself and the viewer.
