Teppei Kaneuji
https://teppeikaneuji.site/

Currently based in Kyoto, he works as a visual artist and sculptor. In his practice, he creates paintings, sculptures, and installations from collages of the products or objects around us in our everyday lives.
By dissociating and reconnecting images, he questions the material meaning of existence and guides us toward new perspectives.
He has recently expanded the scope of his practice to include the moving image and theater, producing dynamic work that sharply penetrates the relationship between material and image.
