Enrico Isamu Oyama

Rafaël Rozendaal
A pioneer of the net art scene, Rozendaal (b. 1980) is a Dutch-Brazilian artist who uses the internet as both his studio and his canvas. While he initially gained global prominence from his websites, Rozendaal has creatively utilized the internet—“the universal library”—to transcend these digital works into the physical world, be it his lenticular paintings, tapestries, and web installations.
In 2018, Rozendaal held his first solo museum exhibition GENEROSITY at Towada Art Center in Aomori Prefecture, Japan. Other recent major exhibitions include, among others, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (USA), Centre Pompidou, Paris (FR), Dordrechts Museum (NL), Kunsthal Rotterdam (NL), Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (NL), and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (USA).
Publications include Home Alone (Three Star Books) and Everything, Always, Everywhere (Valiz).
