Shota  Suzuki 

 

1987 Born in Japan

2010 Graduated from  Tohoku university of art & design ( Japan)

Live in Kyoto, Japan.

 

 

 The inspirations for my work is mainly from the natural world. I’m interested in capturing subtle changes I find through seasonal beauty, such as seeing a first spring flower coming into bloom on a street, the dandelion seeds being blown by the wind, water drops falling from a tree into a paddle creating a ripple and foliage in autumn brings harvest time with a transition for the winter process.

 

My sculpture is made in metal such as copper,brass and silver  with application of special Japanese patina technique. In my work, I try to pursue the balance between beautiful energy and sensual intimacy that I feel from both nature and metal.
