About Meguru Yamaguchi
Meguru was born in Tokyo in 1984. He moved to the United States in 2007, and lives in Brooklyn, New York. His signature traditional brush strokes transcend the styles of borders and eras to sublimate contemporary expressions. His best-known piece is OUT OF BOUNDS, in which brushstrokes break out of the boundaries of the canvas to exist independently. He deconstructed and rebuilt that approach in his SPLITTING HORIZON series.
