#495 Journey of Automatism by Hirofumi Ito

We struck gold when we stumbled upon a talent like Hirofumi Ito. Born and raised in Japan, since he was a child he has loved drawing more than exercise. Since 2016 Hirofumi has been sharing his creations on Instagram where he recreates his fantasy worlds derived from a traditional Japanese culture. Monsters, girls, molluscs, mushrooms as well as all possible ridiculous, absurd and attractive things that the artist imagined as a child become the protagonists of his personal work. He expects his ideas to become the means to connect with people living in remote places. Today his art has reached as far as the Solar System.


We are driven by automatism to an unknown universe. We do not care what happens to our bodies and minds, because the path we are taking is constructed by the automatism. In some distant place, we will finally be connected with the creatures and inanimate objects created by the great Surrealists. At that very moment, we ourselves will become part of the "exquisite corpse“.
