Atsushi Kaga

Complex and spirited, the works of Japanese-born Atsushi Kaga contain much of the darkly humorous rebellion found in the contemporary drawing practices of artists like Yoshimoto Nara, David Shrigley and Marcel Dzama. Psychologically intense and intentionally deceptive in their surreal, whimsical nature, Kaga weaves his collection of Anime-inspired characters in and out of harrowing narrative. Drawing inspiration from personal experience, social satire and popular culture, Kaga imbues his characters with a real world sensibility, in addition to cartoonish fantasy. Quietly relevant, and at times heartbreaking, the work of Atsushi Kaga transcends the two-dimensionality of it’s medium. 


Atsushi Kaga has participated in solo and group exhibitions at a variety of international institutions including mother’s tankstation, Dublin, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Nicolas Krupp Gallery, Basel, Switzerland, Butler Gallery, Kilkenny, Ireland, Sandra and David Bakalar Gallery, MassArt, Boston, and Location One, New York.
