Shinnosuke Tojo is a Japanese artist obsessed with something invisible that exists. In Replica series, Tojo makes three-dimensional paintings with scratches on a thin steel plate to bring back images or landscapes to real life which he saw with synesthetic sense to real life. Those images never get fixed since they look different all the time with lighting conditions, but that's the way how he sees them. Sharing those moments with visitors will be evidence that he is alive and leaves a trace of life behind.
Tojo Shinnosuke was born in Nagano in 1978 and currently lives and based in Kanagawa, Japan. In 2004, Tojo received B.F.A from Tokyo Zokei University
Tojo has won several art prizes in Japan such as Grand-Prix of VOCA Art Award (2019) and Sprial Independent Creators Festival (2018), also participated in several Artist Residency Programmes in Asia including Thailand and China. His works have been exhibited in galleries nationwide, including exhibitions at Koumimachi Kogen Museum of Art, 53 Museum, and Ueno Royal Museum.
