Yoshi Sodeoka explores a multitude of media and platforms which comprises video, gifs, and print. His neo-psychedelic style stems from his love of and background in music. Noise, punk, and metal all influenced his development of complex, mind-altering visuals. His practice involved the use of digital video feedback, footage samples and online imagery, and his videos’ audio soundscapes are often the result of intense collaborative work.
Building an all-encompassing career, he reached many artistic fields including fine art, music (Psychic TV, Tame Impala, Oneohtrix Point Never, Yeasayer, Beck, The Presets, Max Cooper), editorial illustration (New York Times, Wired Magazine, The Atlantic, M.I.T Technology Review) fashion (Sandro paris, Wad Magazine, Adidas, Nike), and advertising (Apple, Samsung). In 2013, he also initiated Undervolt & Co, a label to distribute the work of internationally-renown video artists.
Sodeoka’s work has been exhibited internationally, including at Centre Pompidou, Tate Britain, the Museum of Modern Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, Deitch Projects, La Gaîté lyrique, the Museum of Moving Image, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and Laforet Museum Harajuku.
