'Abstract Painting Op 2' is an abstract mixed media, oil and acrylic painting on canvas. "The way that the imagery in my painting is composed resembles the structure of modern society, in that layers of different elements are tangled within a contained area, be it within a rectangle or among people."
Masaki Yada is a collectable emerging artist, his paintings can be found in renowned collections worldwide, including the Zabludowicz collection, Alison Myners - Chair of Council of Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), University of the Arts London, and many private collections. Yada habitually creates abstract paintings, exploring paint in its full range of textures from translucent inkiness to thick impasto. The paintings achieve a containment of elements both tangled and discreet, an embodiment of the painter's thematic concern with the idea of the city. Yada’s practice has taken a startling turn in mysterious amorphous images offset against a dark plane of colour, suggestive of new life forms, subterranean and self-created.
