He is primarily a sculptor and his dynamic works are created by combining organic and synthetic materials and by contrasting the city's image with that of the jungle.[/vc_column_text][dfd_accordion style="style-1" active_section="0" border_radius="0" tab_background="#ffffff" border_color_radius="#ffffff" font_size="14" icon_size="14"][vc_tta_section title="Read More..." tab_id="1482314626436-0d1da5c7-e28ac15e-bcd7"][vc_column_text]He studied architecture at Tokyo University of the Arts, receiving his BFA in 1988 and his MA in 1992. His architectural training has had a profound effect on his artistic production, which is marked by an almost obsessive attention to detail, the structural-volumetric construction of his pieces and a fascination with the natural world. He was commissioned by the Sifang Art Museum in Nanjing, China, to create Snow Leopard Garden (2014), a major permanent installation composed of approximately one hundred tons of stones and live plants in the shape of a snow leopard. His works can be found in the collections of the Art Institute, Chicago; Kunsthalle Bern; Mori Art Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art, both Tokyo; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles;  Tate Gallery, London; MoMA and the Whitney Museum of American Art, both New York. He has participated in the 7th Istanbul Biennale (2001); the 50th Venice Biennale of Art (2003), representing Japan, together with Motohiko Odan; the 25th São Paulo Biennale (2003); Whitney Biennale (2004), New York; and Glasstress (2011), Venice. He has had personal and group exhibitions at the Kunsthalle, Bern (2006); the Aspen Art Museum (2006), Colorado; Maison Hermès Le Forum (2010), Tokyo; Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery (2011); Santa Monica Museum of Art (2013), California; and the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago (2006, 2015).[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/dfd_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][dfd_heading enable_delimiter="off" style="style_01" title_font_options="tag:h5" subtitle_font_options="tag:h3" title_t_heading="" subtitle_t_heading=""]Every Snowflake Has A Different Shape N. 30 / N. 35 , 2010[/dfd_heading][dfd_heading enable_delimiter="off" style="style_01" title_font_options="tag:h5" subtitle_font_options="tag:h3" subtitle="Crystal" title_t_heading="" subtitle_t_heading=""][/dfd_heading][dfd_heading style="style_01" title_font_options="tag:h5" subtitle_font_options="tag:h3" subtitle="14.3 x 26.4 x 23.8 cm" title_t_heading="" subtitle_t_heading=""][/dfd_heading][dfd_heading style="style_01" title_font_options="tag:h5" subtitle_font_options="tag:h3" subtitle="Glasstress 2011, Glasstress New York" title_t_heading="" subtitle_t_heading=""][/dfd_heading][vc_row_inner css=".vc_custom_1483112148809{margin-right: 5% !important;margin-left: 5% !important;}"][vc_column_inner width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="18076" img_size="full" alignment="center" css_animation="appear" onclick="zoom"][dfd_spacer screen_wide_resolution="1280" screen_wide_spacer_size="100" screen_normal_resolution="1024" screen_tablet_resolution="800" screen_mobile_resolution="480" screen_normal_spacer_size="80" screen_tablet_spacer_size="80" screen_mobile_spacer_size="60"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="18077" img_size="full" alignment="center" css_animation="appear" onclick="zoom"][dfd_spacer screen_wide_resolution="1280" screen_wide_spacer_size="100" screen_normal_resolution="1024" screen_tablet_resolution="800" screen_mobile_resolution="480" screen_normal_spacer_size="80" screen_tablet_spacer_size="80" screen_mobile_spacer_size="60"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
