Naoki Fuku was born in Tokyo, Japan. He moved to London where he started to focus on his artistic career. Nowadays he lives and works in Germany & Switzerland.
His work consists of object works, paintings & installations and often takes a mixed view on social, political and cultural issues in both systematic as well as poetic ways, inviting the viewer to move into a space of speculation. His object works are placed in the canon of the western culture, attempting to make visible what might be overlooked in today’s modern life.
At This Art Fair SinArts will show a number of works from the Study of the Human Mind-series. Ink drawings on paper and canvas that are litteraly phisicaly charged by Naoki Fuku by punching the painted surface during production. By presenting us disturbing portraits Naoki hopes to give the viewer hope by realising there are always worse places.
The artist’s work has been exhibited at galleries, museums and alternative venues in Japan, USA, Switzerland, Germany, England, France, Belgium, Brazil, the Netherlands, Spain and Russia.
