Yoshihiko Satoh

Yoshihiko Satoh takes mass-produced goods that have become part of our every day life, enlarges and/or multiplies them, creating sculptures that unleash the energy residing in their function and shape. In 2002, he won the KIRIN ART AWARD Grand Prix for "Present Arms", a 12-neck guitar conceived as a challenge to a rock guitarist he idolizes. In 2005 he placed second at the 6th Spiral Independent Creators Festival. Born in 1968, Satoh lives in Saitama, Japan and has a Masters degree from the Tokyo National University of Fine Art & Music.
