Keita Miyazaki was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1983.
He studied at Tokyo University of the Arts, Japan (2003-2009) and at the Royal College of Art, UK (2011-2013).
His work has been presented in several shows in UK and Japan, including the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Daiwa Foundation in London. Sculpture in the City of London featured Miyazaki’s site–specific installation Organisms of Control. A selection of recent sculptures is part of the duo exhibition ‘After the Deluge’, on show at Palazzo Sant’Apollonia during the Venice Biennale 2017.
Miyazaki is currently artist in residency at Vannucci Art Residency.
Keita Miyazaki’s sculptures and installations feature materials whose association suggests ambiguity in as much as they conjecture an unfamiliar visual language. Discarded car engine components are welded together and combined with coloured folded paper shapes and sewn felt fashioning sculptures of beguiling contradiction and unique aesthetic intrigue that appear at once automated yet also organic.
