Hiroki Tsukuda (b. 1978, Kagawa, Japan)
Hiroki Tsukuda was born in 1978 in Kagawa, Japan. He graduated from the Department of Imaging Arts & Sciences at Musashino Art University in 2001. Tsukuda lives and works in Tokyo.
The artist’s black charcoal and ink drawings explore the turbulent, futuristic cityscapes of his imaginings. Created with meticulous detail these intricate, monochromatic works illustrate collapsed spaces, in which mechanized worlds merge with sci-fi mythos. Similarly, Tsukuda creates installation works out of raw industrial material, flora, and found objects that transpire directly from the artist’s drawings.
Tsukuda’s solo exhibition at the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein in Aachen, Germany, opened in September 2017.
Tsukuda is the recipient of the Bacon Prize, Art Fair Tokyo (2009).
