Dilahirkan di Osaka, Nao Matsunaga telah lama menetap dan menjadi perupa di London. Ia terakhir menamatkan pendidikannya pada tingkat pascasarjana dari Royal College of Art, Inggris, di mana ia juga menjadi pengajar tamu. Karya-karya Matsunaga memancarkan rasa tentang alam bawah sadar dan ekspresi primal. Komposisi bentuk-bentuknya yang ekspresif, yang kaya akan sentuhan jemari dalam teknik pinching, mengesankan percobaan untuk mengenali kembali kementahan abstrak alam dalam persepsi manusia yang paling mendasar. Hal ini menubuh dari perhatian khusus yang diberikan Matsunaga terhadap benda-benda dan ruang seremonial, sebagai hasil dan jangkauan alami dari usahanya untuk menyelami aspek ritualistik primitif yang terkandung di sana.

Originally born in Osaka, Nao Matsunaga is an artist who lives and works in London. He graduated with an MA from the Royal College of Art, London, where he is also a visiting lecturer. Matsunaga’s work echoes much about the subconscious world and sense of primal expressions embedded in men. His works, expressively characterised with traces of pinching, suggests a gesture to grasp the raw natural abstractness in the most basic of human perception. Such aspect is embodied as result from a particular attention that Matsunaga maintains with ceremonial objects and spaces, and the primitive-universal ritualistic aspect set within.
