Atsushi Kaga




Behind the playful and surreal facade of Atsushi Kaga’s misleadingly simple and faux-crude works lurks much darker territory wherein the artist confronts (through the eyes of a self-proclaimed ‘Otaku’) serious issues of cultural politics, paranoia, the complex search for personal identity and the daily philosophical crises of the harsh realities of the world. Influenced by the Japanese story-telling cultures of Manga and Anime, his sharp humour and extraordinary imagination takes the viewer, willingly, on a journey of exploration through a complex and often brutal, but very funny, alternative world.
