Dominique Lutringer was born in France. Having been fascinated by Japanese culture since adolescence, He moved to Japan in the nineties. He primarily works with flat surfaces, and his work ranges from colourful pieces with an emphasis on dynamic shapes to a monochromatic series. In recent years, he has presented many works that fuse Japanese aesthetics with contemporary minimalism. This allows him to express different notions, such as the simple aesthetics using straight lines and blanks, the sensitivity towards change and imperfection, the aspiration towards harmony with nature.
