Koshiro Akiyama (b.1994, Japan) is a visual artist whose works are based on photos and memories. The mediums used, especially acrylic, ink and watercolour, are chosen to build up multiple transparent layers with fluid brushstrokes. Having absorbed the expressive, disturbing potential of Eduard Munch's work, Koshiro's use of vibrant, even lurid, colours construct illusionistic and dream-like worlds, employing a direct, intuitive process to use these settings to create psychologically probing paintings. 
Koshiro lives and works in London, UK.
