KEN SHIOZAKI


Born in 1972 in Tokyo, Japan


Forming the basis of his works around the myths and folklore of ancient Japan, Ken Shiozaki mixes traditional Japanese styles with contemporary motifs and pop culture references. His work is characterized by his impeccable skill and detail in rendering vivid conceptualizations of Mt. Fuji, sparring dragons, and humorous demons. Shiozaki has a Master’s degree in Nihonga from Tama Art University and has been featured in high-profile exhibitions and art fairs across Japan and the United States.
