Reported by Muhammad Syazni Bin Yousman.
Teppei Kaneuji is an artist from Kyoto, Japan. He was born in 1978, Osaka, Japan. His works are about assembly. He likes to shift the functions or context to make new forms and connections. Once he collects his objects, he will group them accordingly int their categories. Some of the categories are “things that can be piled up high”, “things that look like bones” or even ” transparent things”.
His philosophy is what you feel, what you observe or even from memories or sensations, you can use that as a tool to do your art. It’s mostly based on your own experience. His way of thinking can help yourself to explore deeper about yourself.
Teppei Kaneuji has made achievements for his art. He do his arts based on himself. What you see in his art is what represents him. One of his art is called “White Discharge”. Its about dripping layers of white polyester resin onto his constructions and fuse them together. The process suggests a sense of transition. These are some of his art that was displayed at National Museum Of Singapore.
