Lives and works in Oita
Kunimoto has been mainly painting a throng of people. Each and every person in the throng does not have any expression or distinct color. The figures painted just as if they were shadows with slightly blurred outlines somehow seem ephemeral while they seem definite on the one hand. It can be said that our life is lived mostly in the crowd such as in a square, at an intersection, or on a street. We do have a distinct individuality when leaving the house but lose some of the characteristic aspects as we blend into the crowd on a street or in a square people gather. We are the being going back and forth between a certain individual and an indefinable something.
Kunimoto has been participating in numerous exhibitions across the country and receiving widespread supports from collectors worldwide.
