For Danish artist Silas Inoue, art is very much about intersections: those between art and science, as well as those between different cultural heritages.
His examination of these intersections emerges in his art as exciting conversations between these disparate ideals. Pairing, for instance, aspects of Japanese culture with Danish references, Inoue invites viewers to consider the ways in which themes and motifs and be shared and evolve between traditions. At the same time, Inoue pushes the bounds of unconventional media: from cooking oil to bacterial mold cultures, there is no medium too daring.
Born in 1981 in Copenhagen, Inoue studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow as well as at Osaka Seikei University before completing his MA in Visual Communication from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2010.
