About

Gentaro Masuda is a Japanese painter living in Berlin. Soon after finishing his study in mathematics and physics in Germany, he rapidly developed his career as a painter, participating in art fairs and group exhibitions in Germany, beginning with his first solo exhibition in April 2022 in Kreuzberg, Berlin. His works depict the physical and psychological effects on people under social transitions from a neutral perspective. Through his reconstruction of memories in painting, he explores the cause and effect of unconscious values that bind our actions. In addition to traditional mediums such as painting, he uses his background as a mathematician to express his art through a variety of media, combining mathematics, programming, and 3DCG.
