About the artist
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 collage 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); Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, Aachen, Germany (2017); and Nanzuka, Tokyo (2014), among others. He has been included in group exhibitions at the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2019); Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong (2019); Jack Hanley Gallery, New York (2016); and Brandenburgischer Kunstverein Postdam e.V., Potsdam (2015), among others.
