His very exceptional design and style Juxtaposes hyper sensible, completely balanced and controlled, black and white information, with howling and instinctive summary-expressionist like thick acrylic brushstrokes.

Naritaka Satoh’s artworks, imbued with enigmatic recollections, depict and take care of the contrast in between logic and emotion, pervasive in each individual solitary and social carry out. Summoning idealistic and classic tenacious poetic imaginaries, mixing it jointly with daring factual truth, Satoh generates profound nevertheless charming compositions, unbiased from rigorous anatomy and quantity, encapsuled in an unsure time interval. The title takes inspiration from and old Japanese saying: ‘Cover up what smells bad’. Quoting the artist words: ‘As the indicating goes, to be happy or displeased only with the good areas that have been launched into the globe, without having revealing inconvenient truths, is like wandering by means of a fictional entire world. Points are built up of all kinds of intertwining and balancing situations, which include those people that are favorable or unacceptable to oneself. We struggle, waver and wriggle in between the boundaries of all types of situations. The system is in no way noticeable to the human eye, but I think that by understanding the whole image, with all the things of the qualifications that go on inside of the fantastically geared up membrane, we can reside in the truth without having any falsehoods’.

Eros and Thanatos, order and anarchy, harmony and instability, consciousness and unconsciousness inevitably live together in any entity and the worth of discovering a harmony in involving these forces is what generates extraordinary minds and creations. Satoh’s designed his precedence to give a shape to this solved disconnection, masterfully depicting the solemnity of this splendid and serene spirit in a position to give the right area and to preserve beneath command the chaos that inhabit it.
