    One explosion gives billions of particle scatters of the medium. Multi explosions multiply the scatters to even trillions of particles.

Firecracker Painting™️

Artist Takayuki Matsumine has found his own painting method and style as his trademark. The new painting method was named by him “Firecracker Painting”. As the name of the painting method, he uses firecrackers to blast and scatter paint to create a picture of a space blast, “Supernova“, on canvas. Public fireworks are sold legally in Japan, where Takayuki Matsumine is based, and he considered the situation is his benefit.

A star flashes and twinkles after the explosion.

Those stars scattered in the Galaxy repeat the cycle of reincarnation: explosion and birth. He spread out ‘Firecracker Painting’ by taking advantage of the explosion of firecrackers all over the canvas. He made a painting of supernova explosion through blasting firecrackers. The system of reincarnation that explosion creates a new planet resembles apoptosis. About 3,000 human cells die in a day and reproduced. He feels the magnificent universe and the macrocosmic human cell in common, which have a fateful cycle that everything must come to an end in order to be renewed. The paint left its mark of explosion power which blasted unintentionally and even the tiniest paint can be found far from the center. All those tiny blasted dots on the canvas is too minute to be captured by a pixel digital camera.

  Explosion, death, and birth are in one united cycle. We shall never fear the death in order to be renewed. This is how human being is supposed to be and ordained by the universe.

Here is the statement about this painting style by artist Takayuki Matsumine:

The stars blink after the blast.

The stars scattered in the galaxy are repeating bombing and birth. “Firecracker Painting”, drawn using the blast of firecrackers, was scattered all over the canvas. By blasting firecrackers, paintings are imagined as supernova explosions in space. The recirculating system in which a new star is created by blasting is similar to human cell death and apoptosis. About 300 billion human cells die and regenerate daily. In order to be renewed, we feel the commonality of the fateful cycle in which there is something to die, the magnificent universe and the macroscopic world of human cells. Paint that pops out unintentionally in an explosion leaves traces of the power of the explosion, breaking it off as far away as the smallest form of paint powder. The powder shredded on the canvas is so fine that the digital camera’s pixels can’t pick it up.
Blasting, death, and birth are one. Don’t be afraid to die to be renewed. That’s human beings, determined from the universe.
