Ken Yonetani PDF Print E-mail


Australian based Japanese artist Ken Yonetani creates sculptural installations made from ceramics and other similarly fragile materials. His work draws on the traditions of his Japanese cultural heritage to address contemporary environmental crises facing many parts of the world.

Ken Yonetani was born in Japan in 1971, where he studied pottery under the master Toshio Kinjo. He moved to Australia in 2003, gaining an MA from the Australian National University’s School of Art in 2005. Yonetani’s current work uses fragile and ephemeral materials as a metaphor for modern day consumerism and destruction of the natural environment.
