Tetsuya Nakamura

Born in 1968 in Chiba, Japan.
B.A. Tokyo University of Arts in 1992.
M.A. Tokyo University of Arts in 1994.
Currently lives and Works in nagano, Japan.

Since 1998, Nakamura has been working on the “Replica” series, employing the theme of speed, which is symbol of contemporary world, aiming to progress the speediness of his own works,As if it is on the verge of running and going speedy without any engine or mobile units, his sculpture gives viewer the instinctive pleasure.
The sculptures are made with FRP and all process of making, from molding to coating, is done by hands.
Yet, the delicate finished work does not provide impression of handwork.
His works represent the abstracts such as velocity and strength and present relationship between the form of things and their texture of surface, and the human feeling provoked by them.

In recent years he focuses on paint pattern with recognition that paint patterns are controlled by configurations and surface is recessive element to configurations.
Making the pattern itself as independent sculpture, he seeks to create sculptures that enhance the quality of things as the strong stronger and the fast faster.

He had been exhibited in many exhibitions, such as CHIKAKU: Time and Memory in Japan – Art from a New Generation in Japan, Istituto Giapponese di Cultura, Roma, Museum of Diachronic Art "ACINAÚS", Kastoria, Greece, 2005; Alternative Paradise, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Ishikawa, 2005; and Steellife, Triennale di Milan, Milan, Italy, 2009.

Nakamura also participated in international exhibitions as The 6th Shanghai Biennale –Hyper Design, Shanghai Art Museum, Shanghai, China, 2006, and Busan Biennale 2008, Busan Museum of Modern Art, Gwangalli Beach and APEC Naru Park, etc, Korea, 2008.
His talent outreaches beyond the field of fine art as appreciation towards his talent grows.
More recently, he contributed for the graphic design of slay, uniform, and helmet of Vancouver Olympic Japanese luge team in 2010.

His works are in collections of public spheres and museums including: Natira International Airport, Narita, Chiba, Japan; 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Ishikawa, Japan; Japan Foundation, Tokyo, Japan; Takamatsu City Museum of Art, Kagawa, Japan; and Toyota Municipal Museum of Art, Aichi, Japan.
