Inose was born in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan. He lives and works in London. He graduated from Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, where he specialized in Oil Painting, in 2012 and received his MA (Fine Art) at UAL Chelsea College of Art And Design in 2017. Inose was a participant of 21st DOMANI at National Art Center Tokyo in 2018. He also participated in Roppongi Crossing in Mori Art Museum in 2022. He has exhibited his works in museums such as Takamatsu City Museum of Art and Powerlong museum in Shanghai. His works are included in the Takahashi Collection and in the Benetton Foundation. Inose’s work explores the tension between the natural world and its grasping appropriation by human influence. Inose uses oil painting techniques to create both meticulously realistic landscapes and abstract oil paintings on canvas. His works of art create an inquiry of our relationship and understanding of nature. Inose also creates a debate on the role of the original masterpieces and how this has changes in the contemporary postmodern world.
