Born in Japan, but now residing in Brisbane for most of the year, Shin Koyama is an artist influenced by both Eastern and Western cultures. Shin is practiced in various mediums, including printmaking, ceramics and acrylics, and depicts contemporary themes and issues using traditional Japanese iconography and methods. Shin’s latest exhibition, Yume Makura, is inspired by archetypal notions of fate and damnation explored in the 1915 short story Rashomon, by Ryunosuke Akutagawa.
