KOZO NISHINO (1951-) Sculptor

PROFILE Biography

Graduated from Kyoto City University of Art in 1978 and 79 he visited ruins in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. During this time, he was inspired by monumental buildings and structures created with human power. Over the years, he has used high welding techniques to make large-scale, kinetic sculptures - primarily using titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum, in his works these strong metals are transformed into delicately structured works of ethereal beauty.
