  • 荒井理行

Masayuki Arai was born in 1984 in Wisconsin in USA and based in Kanto area in Japan. His works are created by collaging various kinds of photos from magazines or internet websites and recreating imaginary scene by adding another picture he depicted surrounding the photos took in the real world. Through the recreated imaginary images, the artist invites viewers to reconsider how to perceive information in the today’s world and question how to understand and define the real world.
