SHOTA MAEHARA

How May We Assist You?

Shota Maehara faces so many unexplainable feelings in his life. They are lying deep inside of him and he is trying to somehow express and share them with people.  In moments when he expresses them in words, so much information disappears, and sometimes Shota feel so lonely.  Compared to spoken word, perhaps art cannot express information quite as accurately or concisely, but he believes art can instantly convey a deeper meaning and more information. It’s at these times when describing emotions, in words seems so fuzzy, that we can communicate through artwork. Recently some poets have used Shota’s artwork to complement their poetry on Instagram. These poets have essentially discovered an illustrated representation of their verbal/ written expression. This had a powerful, affirming effect on Shota.  He realizes that this is exactly what he has always wanted to do, because he could share his unexplainable feelings with them through his artwork. 

“My finished art is rendered with 3D graphics and live in the virtual world.  However, the creative process is quite organic.  First, I draw inspiration from the natural world: The human mind, nature, science and the universe.  My journey is all about discovering the invisible parts of existing things and simply highlighting them.  By doing so, I rediscover who I am in the process.  Then the inspiration comes, bringing me to something like a state of meditation.  In this state of emotional and mental calm I notice so many things and become more aware.  From there, I start sculpting objects in the virtual world, so matter what that finished thing is, there is a beautiful and natural art form existing in it.”

“This medium is founded in the latest technologies, and all too often the artists’ quest for new techniques morphs the journey into a technical experiment. But I always keep in mind that the most important thing is "What I want to say”, not "What new thing I can make.”
