Naoki Fuku is a Japanese artist who was born in Tokyo. He moved to London where he started to focus on his artistic career. Nowadays he is residing and working in Germany and Switzerland.
He studied painting under the Japanese painter and art school teacher 'Naoko Yanase'. Further he took courses in 'Shodo', Japanese Calligraphy. His work consists of object works, paintings and photographs and often takes a mixed view on social, political and cultural issues in both systematic as well as poetic ways, inviting the viewer to move into a space of speculation. The media coverage of world affairs is his main source of inspiration, while the feeling of modernity is hidden in most of his works. His object works are placed in the canon of the western culture, attempting to make visible what might be overlooked in today’s modern life.
Naoki Fuku’s works are owned by various private collectors and are commissioned by companies such as Japan's biggest clothing company UNIQLO. The artist’s work has been exhibited at galleries and alternative venues in Japan, Switzerland, Germany, England, France, Austria, Brazil, the Netherlands and Russia.
