Kenjiro Okazaki
Kenjiro Okazaki (b. 1955) is a Japanese visual artist whose works span over several genres, including painting, sculpture, as well as landscape and architecture. Many of his works has been featured in public collections throughout Japan and in various exhibitions around the world. In 2002, Okazaki was selected as the director of the Japanese pavilion of the International Architecture Exhibition in Venice Biennale. His works include a collaborative performance ‘I Love my Robot’ with the choreographer Trisha Brown, premiered in early 2007. He received a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship at Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (HMSG) in 2014.
Okazaki is an active theoretician and critic, and has authored several books, including Renaissance: Condition of Experience (Bunshun Gakugei Library, 2015) featuring his analysis of Filippo Brunelleschi, and Abstract Art as Impact: The Concrete Genealogy of Abstract Art (Akishobo, 2018) which received the Minister of Education Award for Fine Arts in 2019.

Enrico Isamu Ōyama
Oyama (b. 1983) received his MFA from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2009.
He has garnered critical acclaim within the contemporary art scene for his signature motif, the “Quick Turn Structure,” which has its origins in the visual language of aerosol writing and street culture. Major solo exhibitions include, among others, the Kanagawa Prefectural Gallery (JP), Fujisawa City Art Space (JP), Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, London (UK), Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, Kansas (US), Pola Museum, Hakone (JP), Nakamura Keith Haring Museum, Yamanashi (JP), and Tower 49 Gallery, New York (US).
Oyama’s publications include Against Literacy: On Graffiti Culture (LIXIL Publishing), The Real Faces of Street Art: New York Writing Culture (Siedosha), The Art in the Streets: From Twombly to Bansky (Kodansha). Additional, he served as editor of a special issue on aerosol writing for Japanese art magazine Bijitsu Techo and has collaborated with brands such as Comme des Garçons and Shu Uemura.

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).
