Yusuke Muroi | 室井 悠輔


Muroi was influenced by graffiti in the streets and started making work from an anti-cultural standpoint. He shapes his ideas by adding something to ready-made goods and the landscape. However they do not keep their original shape. He regards photographic records as his works and is interested in what exists outside of Art. He also makes artworks that are inspired by what lies outside the field of Art. Although he experienced a lot of self-conflict in his work for several years, the ways of thinking of the painter Jean Dubuffet and the artist Mike Kelley enabled him to find a new direction and key sites of reference.
