Un Sedicesimo 61
In Un Sedicesimo 61, Nao Tatsumi uses Google Street View as a choice of painting motifs, as a result of her interest in the idea of being able to see scenes from around the world through a neutral lens.
The QR codes on the pages show the original images, while her paintings are a consequence of looking at the scenes from her subjective point of view. And this is also her approach to contemporary painting
Nao Tatsumi was born in Fukushima, Japan in 1983. After graduating in Architectural Design of Art from the University of Tsukuba, she started painting in earnest from 2015. In 2017 she started her “Street View Journey” series: she finds and paints fascinating scenes taken from Google Street View using her individual sense of colour and her own filters. She is based in Tokyo and she has held numerous exhibitions in Japan and abroad.
