Koji Kasatani an obsession that gives you smile
Koji Kasatani was born in Tokyo in 1964 and studied at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy.
This whimsical sculptor lives in a surfing town an hour and a half from Tokyo and works mainly in ceramics.
Exhibited in prestigious galleries in Tokyo and Taiwan, his work focuses on his obsession, the banana.
From his obsession, Koji draws a high quality production. He personifies the banana by giving it a human attitude on the borderline between asbestos and the activities of everyday life.
Koji Kasatani's creations have a strong hyperrealism that confuses the eye.
