Shingo SUZUKI biography | artworks | events

Suzuki was born in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan in 1964. After graduating from the art department at the Tokyo University of the Arts majoring in Japanese urushi lacquer art, he began working as a lighting designer while pursuing his art at the same time. At first, Suzuki exhibited numerous installations, making miniature models as a way of creating simulations of his final work. He soon became fascinated by model making as a part of the creative process, and began to shift his style towards photography as a means of recording this stage of his work. As the title “Convenient Island” suggests, the subject of this exhibition is Japan, a country constantly in pursuit of convenience. The motifs depicted in these works are inspired by Tokyo, a huge metropolis that embodies this quality.
