By implementing aspects of both Eastern and Western aesthetics, Kazusa Matsuyama’s work responds to his own bicultural experience of growing up between Japan and the United Kingdom. With his travels abroad, Matsuyama rediscovered a new magnetism of art: a new perception of the world developed through culture, history, and people he encountered. Liberated from the conformities of societal standards when studying at the Blake College of London, Matsuyama sought out different styles and techniques in order to grow as an artist.

Initially starting out with rough sketches, Kazusa prefers nothing be predetermined in his work; the abstract quality of his paintings permit an ever-changing state. Slowly, his images acquire form or a definable direction after nursing the inner beauty of his surroundings. Kazusa uses several techniques when creating a piece of art including acrylic painting, oil painting, Japanese ink, and spray paint.
