Tetsugo Hyakutake works with contemporary issues in relation to their historical contexts. Through his artwork, he creates what he calls his own “truth” shaped by his personal experiences and influences. These “truths” are based on individual beliefs, identities, and relative perspectives rather than facts. Hyakutake’s work attempts to portray one version of the truth, all the while allowing the viewers’ own interpretations.
