​Tomoki Nishino

​Based in Kyoto & Osaka
By drawing a human face in an art work surrounded by patterns,
I seek to symbolize the repeated fate, sin or somber of human beings.
I ​impart strong attraction on my artworks with detailed patterns by curve lines and graphical colors.
The colors that do not match each other generate comfortable discord.
It is essential to guide the route of eyes on art works by patterns & creative color arranging.
​My art works are based on these viewpoints.
While I studied International Relations in University, 
​I visited Portland in Oregon for study abroad, and met Indian art & history which attracted me a lot.
​I became to be interested in taking elements of indigenous art such as Aborigine or Ainu into my art works.
These experiences and interests on the art set me off seeking the visual expressions by using patterns.
I have been familiar with the artists of Art Nouveau 
and historical & cultural background of circle window of Genko-An 
(one of the temples in Kyoto, Japan) for seeking the perfect structure and concept of my art.
These experiences effect on my style of art. 


​I ​learned oil paintings in my hometown

(Tokushima prefecture) under a teacher of oil painting.
