Motoyuki Daifu
Motoyuki Daifu

Born in 1985 in Tokyo, where he continues to live, Motoyuki Daifu graduated from Tokyo Visual Arts in 2007 and that same year exhibited at “Hitotsubo-ten.” He explores the everyday things around us in a humorous,ironical manner through comprehensive images that seem to traverse the ordinary and extraordinary. Recent major exhibitions include “Condocomplex” (Union Pacific, London, 2017), “Japanese Photography from Postwar to Now” (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 2016), “My Family is a Pubis, so I cover them in Pretty Panties” (Little Big Man Gallery, Los Angeles, 2014), “Still Life” (MISAKO & ROSEN, Tokyo, 2014), “Prix Pictet: Consumption” (Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 2014), and “Lovesody” (Lombard-Freid Projects, New York, 2012). Major photo-books include Lovesody (Little Big Man Books), Project Family (Dashwood Books), and Still Life (Newfave). He was nominated for the international photography award Prix Pictet in 2013.

Artist's comment

It is wonderful to be selected as a finalist for the Nissan Art Award in the year that marks a decade since I made my professional debut. I now look forward to seeing the responses to my work as it reaches a wider audience.
