About Motomichi

Motomichi Nakamura was born in Tokyo, Japan. After graduating from Parsons School of Design in New York he moved to Ecuador where he started working as an artist. He returned to the U.S. in 2000 and currently lives and works in Brooklyn.

The subjects in his work often reflect a conflictive nature and can be frightening yet humorous, part human and part monsters. They can also appear at once childlike and sexually deviated. The use of color in both his digital work and in his paintings is limited to black, red and white.

His digital animation work has been exhibited at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in NYC and has appeared in the Sundance and the Onedotzero film festivals. He has performed his live video/animation mix at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC and at other recognized venues in the U.S. and Europe. Recent collaboration work includes music videos with Swedish band The Knife and with Otto von Schirach.

"love the animations!"

"I absolutely love the video he did for "we Share Our Mother's Health" by The Knife. Brilliant artist."

"This is awe inspiring and innovative and all together draws attention to the lesser looked upon form of nonconstructive solid art. This is the reason I love art, the solitary marriage between mind and hand and the product of thought on canvas. This illustrates the brigde between thought and imagine to the T."
