KENDY created a new concept, which he calls “VISUAL ROCK PAINt”.
He developed this style by exploring the gap between mainstream
contemporary art centered in the western world, which has highly focused style,
and visual kei which takes a much more experimental approach. Unlike western art, which gradually developed in a logical way, Japanese art has been accepting of diversity since ancient times.
Visual kei at its core takes influence from completely different aspects of music,
such as hard rock and new wave in Britain and the US, while in fashion it’s inspired by Japanese kabuki. The background of this multicultural and diverse evolution is largely due to Japanese zen art. Zen is the beauty found in spite of imperfection.
In this sense, imperfection means accepting diversity. That is the beauty of Japan. While deeply examining the mind through zen, Japanese art is not about making shapes, but expressing the soul.
His art style is an amalgamation of several influences, namely Russian painter,
Wassily Kandinsky, who visualized music as pictures. He also takes inspiration from asymmetric beauty of Zen art. He strongly believes that accepting each other’s
culture is necessary for the future of the international community.
Therefore, he creates art that holds this ideal. It is a sharp contrast against the face of modern art.
