Daisuke Nagaoka was born in 1973 in Yamagata, Japan. He had received a MA in Fine Arts at the Wimbledon School of Arts, London in 2003.
"Memories" are a pertinent theme in Nagaoka's works. He believes that through "Memories", human beings are capable of affirming emotions which we've left behind.
The simple but delicate narrative in his ink and pencil painting open a dialogue between the real and surreal world. The details in nature and animals he depicts, and the way he moves his pen in tiny waves and strokes create a new boundary in art.
