Zon Ito

  • Zon Ito was born in 1971 in Osaka. He graduated from Kyoto City University of Arts in 1996 and currently lives and works in Kyoto. Ito’s fascination for things natural is at the core of his artistic vocabulary, described in a variety of lowbrow media, including drawing, embroidery, book-making, and animation. Ito privileges media that were somewhat peripheral to much 20th-century artistic practice (when embroidery and clay modelling had the stigma of being too crafty), which he employs to create hybrid landscapes and fantastical dream scenes.
