Kato’s painting and its unusual forms (the head is sometimes as big as the body) are the means through which the artist reaffirms art’s priority, that is its transformation ability…

Izumi Kato’s works seem somehow directly linked to human existence, making us feel strongly the power of painting and art…

Works

"Wenn ich arbeite, gibt es Momente, in denen ich mich fuehle, als ob ich Sportler waere. Es gibt Momente, in denen mein Gedanke, Gefuehl und Koerperbewegung uebereinstimmen und ein Zustand von "nice play" entsteht. Deshalb muss ich mit meiner Malerei immer an den Voraussetzungen arbeiten, unter denen ein "nice play" erreicht werden kann."

Why did you decide to become a painter in an age when every artist can use every mean or artist tool?
