Ryohei MATSUMOTO's Artworks
I want to create a parable of our modern society by referencing the animal kingdom.
In the animal kingdom, there exist social structures such as predator and prey, coexistence, and competition.This structure carries no good or evil and has existed since the dawn of life. I aim to create a piece that knows no place or age by placing human society in this structure.
My fascination with creatures led me to study structural biology at a post-graduate level.
I learned that many living things collectively share similar proteins and DNA at a fundamental level, which is why I decided to express human society in such a manner.
