KENDY

New York, NY

"3/4 Japanese and 1/4 Russian. He started painting on his own in 2018. KENDY has created a new artistic concept called “VISUAL ROCK PAINt” which coexists in the dichotomous worlds of East and West, digital and analog. Based on the cultural values of Japan, which have embraced and developed diversity, KENDY's concept of art is in the historical context of abstract art, which began with Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky and continued with Richter and Jackson Pollock. By identifying "light" with Russian art's Rayonisme and adding Zen art to it, KENDY embodies the art of the Enlightenment. On the other hand, there is also an effort to preserve Japanese visual rock music, a unique Japanese art culture, as a cultural asset in the context of the world's arts. This is based on his experience as an aspiring visual rock musician.  His painting style employs a unique technique that mixes digital silkscreening, a modern interpretation of Andy Warhol's silkscreening, with analog-like acrylic painting. It can be said that this is his unique new artistic method, which is typical of the Japanese-Russian quarter, in which he wants to make as many people living today aware of the social problem of "symbiosis" that people will face in the near future due to the evolution of AI.  Action painter Jackson Pollock is in the historical stream of transition of abstract expression pioneered by Russian artist Vasily Kandinsky. And the Japanese artist Kazuo Shiraga also follows this trend. His radical action painting technique, which directly links physical movement and painting, and his fusion of action painting with Buddhism, especially esoteric Buddhism, which places greater emphasis on the senses and the body in enlightenment, drew international attention for his avant-garde technique, which he called "foot painting. KENDY's "VISUAL ROCK PAINt" follows this trend in art history, and has developed into a unique style by combining Rayonisme, Russian abstract art with strong mathematical elements, and Scandinavian art with strong geometric elements."
