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 drawings and digital collages 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 in states of controlled chaos and organic mutation. Similarly, Tsukuda creates installation works out of raw industrial material, flora, and found objects that transpire directly from the artist’s drawings.
Tsukuda’s has mounted solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, Gunma (2019), Capitain Petzel (2018), and Neuer Aachener Kunstverein in Aachen, Germany (2017). He has been included in group exhibitions at the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2019), Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong (2019), and Brandenburgischer Kunstverein Postdam e.V., Potsdam (2015).
Tsukuda is the recipient of the Bacon Prize, Art Fair Tokyo (2009).
