Daiwa Foundation is pleased to present Like A Prime Number, a solo exhibition by Enrico Isamu Oyama.
Oyama is best known for the signature style Quick Turn Structure (QTS): minimal, free-flowing motifs of repetitive lines, developed from the visual language of graffiti culture and contextualized in the realm of contemporary art.
QTS is perceived by the artist as an infinite driving force with its own life; one that inhabits a higher dimension invisible to us. As a mediator, Ōyama temporarily summons QTS into the physical world and captures the fragmented imprints of its unstoppable motion, visualising them on a plethora of surfaces. These include not only physical objects such as walls, canvases and papers, but also digital, conceptual and social platforms such as videos, live performances and collaborations with fashion brands.
