About

Tomohiro Hanada  

Born in Fukuoka, Japan

Lives and Works in Fukuoka and Beppu, Japan

Tomohiro Hanada (1986) is a Japanese visual artist working with photography as a tool to reflect and deconstruct the invisible in visible. His artistic practice is deeply rooted in personal experience, based on observation, exploration and questioning of the extraordinary that emerges from the ordinary.

 

Moving between familiar and unfamiliar, Hanada continually investigates the possibilities of photography, layering reality and abstraction. Memory and emotions play an important role in the creative process, and intuition and calculation make up his photographs. His creative philosophy aims to challenge the suspension of thought caused by daily routines and to shed light on the overlooked in everyday life.

 

Hanada is a graduate from the Neue Schule Für Fotografie in Berlin, Germany and the Omura Beauty Fashion College in Fukuoka, Japan. Before moving towards photography and visual art, he has worked in New York and London as a fashion designer’s assistant and stylist. After living abroad for 10 years, He moved to Fukuoka Prefecture, where He was born and raised in 2019, and moved into the Art Residence Kiyoshima Apartment, Beppu, Japan in 2022. Currently based in Fukuoka and Beppu.

花田智浩(1986年福岡県飯塚市出身)

花田智浩は、写真をツールとして、目に見えるものの中にある見えないものを映し出し、再構築することに取り組んでいるビジュアルアーティストです。彼の芸術活動は、個人的な経験に深く根ざしており、観察、探求、日常から生まれる非日常なものへの疑問に基づいています。

 

慣れ親しんだものとそうでないものの間を行き来しながら、花田は現実と抽象を重ね合わせ、写真の可能性を追求し続けています。創作の過程では、記憶と感情が重要な役割を果たし、直観と計算が彼の写真を構成します。彼の創造的な哲学は、生活ルーテインによって引き起こされる思考の停止に疑問を投げかけ、日常生活の中で見過ごされているものに光を当てることを目的としています。

 

大村美容ファッション専門学校を卒業後、NYへ渡る。ファッションデザイナーのアシスタントを経験後、ロンドンにてファッションスタイリストとして活動する。 2015年、ベルリン写真専門学校Neue Schule für Fotografie Berlin入学。卒業後より、フリーランスフォトグラファーとしてベルリンを拠点に活動。10年の海外生活を終えて、2019年より生まれ育った福岡に拠点を変える。2022年大分県別府市のアーティストレジデンス清島アパートに入居。現在、福岡と別府の2拠点で活動中。
