Ryota Matsumoto’s hybrid architecture


RYOTA SPEAKS ON HIS ARTWORK:
The artworks of Ryota Matsumoto develop and demonstrate the hybrid/multi-layered process, where varying scale, juxtaposition of different forms, intertwined textures/tones are applied to reflect the spatio-temporal conditions of our ever-evolving urban, natural, and ecological environments. They are created to act as the catalyst for defining speculative changes in our notions of cities, societies and cultures.
His drawings explore a hybrid drawing technique combining both traditional media (ink, acrylic, and graphite) and digital media (algorithmic processing, scripting and image compositing with custom software ).
All the lines, curves and forms are created by algorithmic and generative processes. Then they are redefined and reconfigured with traditional painting/drawing techniques that add colors, textures and details to compositions.
