1988年出生于东京的斑万字,为学习锻金技术作为创作的基础,高中毕业后随即前往京都,于锻金师的门下担任学徒数年,扎根学习各种金属的加工技术之后,立志成为艺术家,持续自学并开始发表创作。


斑万字擅长运用称之为「木目金」(Mokume-gane)的日本传统锻金技术,创作出简洁、具现代感的立体雕塑。木目金的发展始于约四百年前的江户时代初期,层叠多种金属打造出精致的花纹,装饰在武士的刀剑上,兼具美感与权势的象征。随着武士文化式微,做工繁琐且费力费时的木目金技术近乎失传于世,近年受到国际美术馆的收藏与研究,才又重新受到关注,而斑万字更是率先将此传统工艺技术作为艺术创作手法的先驱。


过着极为简朴的生活,斑万字利用最基本的工具,反覆敲击琢磨金、银、铜、黄铜等多种非铁金属材料,日积月累打造出物质本身不相融合,却相织出美丽的纹理,犹如每个人的内心世界中,都有无法相容的思考或感情,在濒临极限边缘,一面互相冲突与抗衡,一面成长前进,而这样的矛盾与超越不仅止于个人内心,亦存在于个人与他人之间,个人与社会之间,这也就是人类的生存之美。


「裸立方 (Uncovered Cube)」系列作品雕塑,看似形状相似的各个面向,实则具备纤细差异,艺术家藉由立方体表现出人类本身具有的多方样貌。探究人性与物质本性的创作方向,从立体延伸至平面,应用木目金的锻造手法过程,在一如往常地敲击下,探讨软硬刚柔迥异的多种媒材相互之间的融合极限与并存关系,投射艺术家对于人性本质相异的反向思索体悟,累积成他充满矛盾与反覆诘问自己的人间观察笔记。
