#TokyoClichés – 6:01 Gomi no hi

Cedric Rolando – Neoyume
50×50 cm

#TokyoClichés is a collection of 3D digital paintings I made depicting Tokyo commonplaces as visual poems.

Inspired by my life in Japan and new technologies, I’m confronting my previous ideas about Japan and its reality.
From my first experience in a sento, to my love for yaki imo, or my obsession for light reflections on Sumida river, I’m experiencing the Capital as pure poetry and crystallize ephemeral pieces of Tokyo.

Mesmerized by wood-block printing and video-games, I try to mix the beauty of traditionnal art and CGs art.
Key elements are sculpted in VR. The visual result is blurring the line between 2D and 3D.
Artworks are printed on Art high quality paper and mounted on a wooden frame.

#TokyoClichés is a way to share my colorful vision of the city.


This “#TokyoClichés – 6:01 Gomi no hi” is about my tradition to wake up early on the “Trash Pickup Day”
