KAZUYA MORIMOTO

NEW YORK & EUROPEAN WATERCOLOR PAINTING

About

New York City based artist Kazuya Morimoto was born and raised in Japan and studied at the Art Factory Institution Of Art with Makoto Arimichi in Japan. Shortly after graduation, Kazuya moved to New York City to study painting at the Art Students League. Since 2000, he has focused extensively on abstract painting. He was awarded several grants and scholarships and has had exhibitions and public art displayed in New York, Chicago and Washington DC.

 Black ink drawings are his daily task since his move to New York. He traveled to Europe in 2006, and since then he has started to sketch street scenes more intensively and begun to use watercolor which brought more colors in his art work. He goes back to Europe every summer for independent sketch travel.

Recently Kazuya Morimoto has been devoting most of his time to painting the streets of New York City, especially historical preservation areas such as Greenwich Village, the West Village, and nearby neighborhoods. He has been archiving old shop fronts and capturing the moments of local scenes before they change and lose their current quality. He attends local art events and helps to save and revitalize the uniqueness of local scenes.

 For his new activity, he is creating miniature architectural sculpture installations inspired by classic European paintings and city scape through his travel
