Born in Tokyo, Japan, 1969. Katsuhiro Saiki’s work revolves around abstraction of the “real world”. After viewing a Lewis Baltz exhibition in Tokyo Saiki moved from paintbrush to camera, using minimalist photography and collage to bring life to our everyday surroundings.
In his series “Buildings for New York City” Saiki has reinterpreted photographic images of buildings by dramatically twisting and folding them in to shape. The effect is dazzling and leaves you unsure of what you’re actually viewing, they are real life morphed into abstraction.
