Yoshiki Uchida

In my work, I create organic creatures using inorganic metals. I create Kanamono Art by arranging hardware, both precisely and accidentally. I combine 48 kinds of Kanamono (hardware), to express the world in a final illustration. My work may appear to be an animal at first glance, but in viewing more carefully, one can see that it consists entirely of Kanamono.

In recent years, Kanamono Art has been linked with traditional Japanese technology. Due to the collaboration with craftsmen from all over Japan, there have been various interpretations of this art form. Often, the mysterious world born from Kanamono balance with technology and a sense of commitment from proud Japanese craftsmen.

I feel fortunate to represent part of traditional craftsmanship through Kanamono Art in a modern world where this trade is declining and have a strong desire to see it succeed in many various forms.
