Teiji Hayama

b. 1975, Kumamoto, Japan. Teiji Hayama is a Giffers, Switzerland-bases artist whose greyscale oil paintings depict the elongated, amorphous figures of some of America’s most iconic stars, in a way that bares almost no resemblance to the icons they supposedly represent. Their faces, with droopy-eyes, bored, exhausted expressions and long amorphous rubber-like bodies provide the viewer with a new perspective of modern-day fatigue. Their peculiar expressions can be interpreted as a comment on how social media has overburdened all of us. (Courtesy of the artist).
