Tatzu Nishi

Born in 1960 in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture. Lives and works in Berlin and Tokyo. In 1997, he began working in Europe with the assumption that his audience would be "ordinary people who are not much interested in art," and he installed his works in the open air. The "expansion of the human imagination" is the raison d'être of his art, and he creates with "laughter, violence, and sexiness" as his tools. He is known for his drastic and adventurous projects that take place in cities and involve people.
