Today’s Must-Know American Talents on TRiCERA

What comes to your mind when you think of American art or American artists? August is an American artist appreciation month, it’s the perfect time for a quick review and new discoveries of American (from/ based) artists.

After WW2, great European countries struggled to maintain their influence on the globe, and instead, the U.S. rose to the occasion. It was also true not only in politics and finance but also in art as the American cultures are advertised and exported more than before. Especially, Pop and Minimalism art movements had impacts on the course of contemporary art.

Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Donald Judd, and Frank Stella – there are quite a few artists we can name so quickly. Thanks to them, we can enjoy the art that we presently know. The U.S.’s political image may not be so noble for us, non-Americans, or not as great as Mr. President’s reminiscents. Still, luckily, we can set aside the bias and celebrate creativity when it comes to art. (I’m sincerely sorry for those in the states about all the turmoil you have to bear at home.) Shall we embark on a delightful escape in the most brilliant artistry of the land of hope and dreams?

Here are some American (from or based) artists that we proudly present on TRiCERA!

Isaac Ishimatsu
Born in Tokyo in 1988 and raised in the countryside, he lives in France. Although he excelled in his studies and work, he spent his time in Japan as an unconventional individual who bewildered serious teachers and superiors. In order to realize his dream of living abroad, which he had dreamed of since his childhood when he was extremely poor, he moved to Canada and worked for a trading company. Currently, he is striving to learn and teach the language and work for TRiCERA. He has worked at a pottery studio, studied music at a university in Canada, and has a wide range of interests including photography and art, and writes about the connection between art and daily life from the perspective of observing the times and comparing cultures.
