Introduction:

MADSAKI’s solo exhibition, “HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW” was open at Kaikai Kiki Gallery from May 19, 2017.

MADSAKI was born in 1974 in Osaka, Japan. After immigrating to the melting pot known as New York at a young age and graduating from Parsons School of Design, he worked as a member of the international artist group Barnstormers before starting his solo career based in Tokyo and New York, ranging from elaborative drawings to huge installations.
