Tag: Hiroyasu Tsuri

Known on the street by his alias TwoOne (a name that is nearly impossible to Google successfully), Hiroyasu Tsuri is a Japanese-born, Berlin-based artist whose interdisciplinary practice extends from murals and paintings to sculptures and ritualistic performances. The artist is interested in the concept of masks as a way to deduce the universal qualities of human psychology. His anthropomorphic animal portraits — though they may recall many types of mythologies, from Japanese to Native American — are devoid of a specific cultural context. Instead, TwoOne attempts to tap into the traits that make all human beings tick. His massive murals exhibit curiosity, jealousy, lust and loneliness, tying a thread between the experiences of humans and other creatures.
