Satoru Koizumi

Satoru Koizumi - Collaborations with Avant ArteGraduated from the Okinawa Prefectural University of Arts in sculpting. Satoru Koizumi carved wood sculptures of human figures dressed as animals are definitely eye catching. It offers a subtle critique of the modern world.

Koizumi's work juxtaposes the human condition and ideas of nature and instinct with the progress of civilisation. The neutral colours and grainy surfaces of his sculptures defies the kitsch, vibrant, consumerist aesthetics of the
Japanese concept of kawaii (cute), and its charming appearance sheds light on contemporary society's broken connection to nature.

Koizumi has showcased his work all over the world from Singapore to the United States
