JAPANESE, BORN 1984
TIDE has risen to international prominence for his pared-back monochromatic compositions that depict the exploits of the artist’s trademark character, a cartoon-like cat. TIDE often depicts this alter ego snuggled up or sitting grumpily in a cat bed with arms crossed à la Garfield.
TIDE’s settings are richly detailed, resembling childhood bedtime story books or the hand-drawn backgrounds of vintage cartoons. He also uses a variety of techniques to construct his paintings, from gestural spray paint to rough brushstrokes to soft airbrush sheens. He has exhibited in many other cities.
