Yamaguchi was born in Shibuya, Tokyo in 1984 and is currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Growing up under the influence of his fashion designer parents and surrounded by a creative environment and street culture, Yamaguchi’s passion for art is inevitable. At the age of 23, he moved to New York and started his career as a studio assistant for Tomokazu Matsuyama’s studio. Since then, he developed his original concepts to his works such as sampling and cut-up which were previously unfamiliar to painting and continues to unveil them domestically and internationally. In the “OUT OF BOUNDS” series, Yamaguchi enables expressive brushstrokes as if time has stopped at that particular moment. He has gained more recognition and the name Meguru Yamaguchi immediately comes to mind for many of his works. The artist demonstrates to the world with striking, dynamic, and powerful brushstrokes, and his works go beyond boundaries, casting aside the restraints of rectangular-shaped canvas, transcending borders, languages and set of rules. Yamaguchi has also collaborated with brands from various industries, including NIKE, UNIQLO, and ISSEI MIYAKE.
