Kenji Arimoto was born in 1991 and spent his youth in a remote new town in the mountains. After the enrollment in Kobe University he began studying architecture and entered the painting world with a bright and often violent, even cruel visual statements. His artworks illustrate the artist’s approach to the surrounding world as a multi-layered system that consists of many storylines, which develop parallel. Parallel narratives are born at different moments, their connections are not always obvious, but still they do exist. As the artist states, he is investigating the nuances of implications of parallel developments in different surroundings. Time in this world does not flow lineally, but is chaotic.
