Tokyo-based Tomoo Gokita implements a black and white palette and acrylic gouache create uniquely even surfaces, which are disquieting but seductive to the viewer. Gokita continues his monochromatic series that explores the traditional portrait format on a range of scales, using source material from vintage postcards, magazines, found photos, and classic film stills.
Tomoo Gokita (b. 1969) lives and works in Tokyo. In 2014 Gokita was the subject of the large-scale solo exhibition, Tomoo Gokita: The Great Circus at the Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art in Sakura, Japan. His work has also been included in such thematic shows as Wonderful My Art, Kawaguchiko Museum of Art, Yamanashi, Japan (2013), among others.
