The artworks of Ryota Matsumoto develop and demonstrate the hybrid/multi-layered process, where varying scale, juxtaposition of different forms, intertwined textures/tones are applied to reflect the spatial conditions of our ever-evolving urban environments. They are created as the catalyst for depicting speculative changes in our notions of cities and infrastructures.
The drawing explores a hybrid drawing technique combining both traditional media (ink, acrylic, and graphite) and digital media (algorithmic processing, scripting and image compositing with custom software) .
