Shintaro Miyake

Miyake is one of the most important young artists in Japan today. Inspired by manga and anime aesthetics, he creates his own fantasy worlds and characters through drawings, woodcarvings, videos and sculptures. Often, the different characters are used as protagonists in performance-art presentations. For instance, at the unveiling of the sculpture at Kistefos- Museet in 2005, Miyake dressed like one of the small red plastic figures!
