About the artist

Katsu

Katsu is a Japanese-American artist based between Brooklyn and San Francisco, his work showcases the ominous and inevitable intersection of art and technology, covering subjects like vandalism, consumerism, AI and digital culture through innovative and boundary-pushing mediums.

With a catalogue spanning from graffiti, AI-generated works and sculptures, he's established himself as one of the most unique and cutting-edge contemporary artists around. In keeping with his forward-thinking nature, he developed a drone that can be used for graffiti named 'Graffiti drone 1.0'. He was inspired by Germany's proposed idea to have drones that would be used to catch vandals and graffiti writers, using the drone to create a now viral piece for which he targeted a Calvin Klein billboard featuring Kendall Jenner, defacing it in a way that would otherwise be impossible.

Katsu graduated with a BFA from Parson's school of design in New York. He's been part of several high-profile exhibitions including 'Beyond The Streets' in Los Angeles and 'Born in the Streets - Graffiti' at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain in Paris. In 2015 he created 'Dronescape Summer' for Coney Art Walls and beyond the streets at Saatchi gallery in London, in which several original works were featured.

Katsu's role in the ever-changing modern art scene is hard to overstate, his innovative approach and strive for uniqueness setting him up to be one of the most exciting artists of the 21st century.
