Osamu Matsuda

Taking many different methodologies such as video, sculpture or drawings, Osamu Matsuda attempts to tackle the universal themes in everyday genre scenes, for instance, life and death. Occasionally depicting the virtuality in modern society, where wars or deaths are continuously reproduced in computer games, Matsuda scoops out those who are neglected from society like heavy shut-ins or the so called NEETs(acronym of Not in Education, Employment or Training.)
