Osamu Obi

About this artist


Osamu is drawn to elements that suggest the unseen: the mark of someone’s touch; a scratch that remains; a wall that is aging even as it stands as a silent witness.
These things exist in the moment but point to a past and change as they move into the future. It is this feeling of constant transformation that fascinates Osamu and that he strives to capture on canvas—in turn leaving his own marks on time.

A Kanagawa native, Osamu completed his undergraduate and graduate studies in oil painting at Musashino Art University in western Tokyo, one of the leading art universities in Japan. After establishing himself as an artist, Osamu returned as a lecturer to his alma mater, where he teaches to this day.
