Korehiko Hino
Painter

Born in Ishikawa, Japan in 1976.
Lives and works in Tokyo.
He paints oddly unbalanced posed portrait, half-naked with briefs. Shocking at first glance, but his transcendent painting certainly captures and mirrors the current precarious state of Japanese society and eventually gives us the shivers with its acute representation of our circumstances.
