Shipbuilding - Torayan tribe

作家情報 Artist Information

Born in Osaka in 1965. Graduated the Kyoto City University of Arts.

Since his debut in 1990, Kenji Yanobe has been one of the most influential contemporary artists in Japan.

Kenji Yanobe's sculpture closely fits a modern Japanese consumer aesthetic.
His pieces, often based on robots, appear to be the products of the most modern industrial design: bright colors, polished metal, articulable joints, and shiny finish.
However, they betray a fear of nuclear war.
Yanobe's artwork includes brightly colored hazmat suits and tiny action figures with built-in geiger counters.
They pose the question: Would life after a nuclear war be possible, and if it were, would it be worth living?
Kenji Yanobe has had art shows throughout the world, including the United States, Europe, and his native Japan.
His artwork was displayed at the grounds of the 1970 World's Fair in Osaka, Japan.
It was the last show there before the site was taken down in March 2004
