Statement

Toshiki is an artist, filmmaker, and photographer who is looking for things that we cannot see with our own eyes. To say that things without matter, matter.

The subjects are often immersed within the landscape to evoke a sense of camouflage; an inseparableness between humans and their surrounding space. Perhaps we are merely an extension of the landscape, both physically and non physically. As an artist I believe that all answers come in form of questions.

My works function within an underlying theory: Our current identity is a continuation of our past. We are actively referring to our past experiences in order to understand the present and future. In this way, time and space can be viewed as something that isn't necessarily chronological. 

Toshiki holds a Masters in Fine Arts from the School of Museum of Fine Arts, Boston / Tufts University,  2014.

In 2016 he was a recipient of the Traveling Fellowship Award from The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and has been actively practicing conceptual photographic and cinematic works.
