Mural Location : East Facing Wall at Bon Marché Mensland
Born in Yokohama, Japan. In his late teens Hiroyasu Tsuri moved to Melbourne, Australia in 2004.
Hiroyasu started to spread his recognisable character based paintings all over Melbourne’s street walls under the name of TWOONE.
He has recently embarked on a whirlwind trip to Berlin, Germany.
Since then painting walls and murals became a big part of his life, as he travels internationally to explore new cities, countries, and places, he always leaves his mark
in the form of small street drawings to full building size murals.
In Parallel to his street activity, Hiroyasu graduated from Visual Arts New Media at Swinburne University of Technology in 2006, during this period he was exposed to lot of different tools and materials, that he enjoyed playing and experimenting with.
This play continued with various other materials that he could get his hands on, experimenting with new technics to enhance the materials strength, this process lead him to reinvent his style and way of creating artwork every time he plays with new materials and substrates.
Hiroyasu says “Studio experimentation and street painting resonate with each other and continue to give me new inspiration to create more”.
Hiroyasu's work often shows 'animal headed human bodied creatures', he calls this on-going series "Phycological Portrait" which shows more of the inner character and personality, that exists timelessly and universally, apposed to ones superficial outlook, He is also exploring ideas with his series titled "Metaphysical Landscape" which often features twisted and stylised still-life / landscapes that stimulate the metaphysical stories to the audience.
