Naoki Fuku is a Japanese artist who was born in Tokyo. He moved to London where he started to focus on his artistic career. Nowadays he is residing and working in Germany & Switzerland.
His work consists of object works, paintings & installations and often takes a mixed view on social, political and cultural issues in both systematic as well as poetic ways, inviting the viewer to move into a space of speculation. The media coverage of world affairs is one of his main sources of inspiration, while the feeling of modernity is hidden in most of his works. His object works are placed in the canon of the western culture, attempting to make visible what might be overlooked in today's modern life.
The artist's work has been exhibited at galleries, museums and alternative venues in Japan, USA, Switzerland, Germany, England, France, Austria, Brazil, the Netherlands, Spain and Russia.
