Mon Koutaro Ooyama


Born in 1979. Graduated from Kyoto City University of the Arts, Faculty of Fine Arts. Lives in Nara. Ooyama is an artist that represents the live-painting scene in Japan. He creates mural paintings, live-paintings, installations and canvas work, as well as planning, directing and staging art projects within and outside of Japan, with a base in Tokyo.

He has many series, starting with ANIMA with a theme on the relationship between the conscious and unconscious, where he explores inside of his self and depicts patterns almost like a primitive roar. Other examples include the 360 degrees mural painting NEXTEFX with a theme of time, space and light, and the installation OTHERS on other people that we cannot communicate with.

He has created mural art for Facebook Japan HQ, Universal Music HQ, Nike HQ, planned and directed the art project #BCTION, performs as live-painting duo DOPPEL, and DJs and creates tracks under the name Yabugarashi.
