Ryo Makioka BIO : Ryo Makioka was born in 1959 in Kanagawa prefecture, just south of Tokyo, Japan. He grew up in the small seaboard town of Zushi where from the time he was a child he has fostered a love for both music and art. Makioka studied design at Tokai University in Tokyo. After this he began working in a pipe organ production studio studying manufacturing. After that, while working as an illustrator, he tried his hand at making pictures.
Makioka’s works have been displayed around Japan. He has been featured in group exhibitions at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, the Hiratsuka City Art Museum, among others. He has also held a solo exhibition at New Otani Hotel in Tokyo and Gallery art Truth in Yokohama.
Presently, using the simple tools of a board and a box of pastels, Makioka is stepping out again to explore a more original painting style. Corresponding with his strong feelings of hope for the future, he creates works based around the theme of light. A light that he hopes might be bright enough to illuminate the truth.
