Mineki Murata村田 峰紀

profile

Born in Gunma, Japan in 1979. Graduated from the Sculpture department of Tama Art University in

2005. Murata’ s drawings and performances are guided by his spontaneous, primitive actions and

the etymological interpretation of the Japanese word kaku, which brings together of four different

meanings: writing (kaku: 書く ) his consciousness, drawing (kaku: 描く ) results, scratching (kaku: 掻

く ) actions, and lacking (kaku: 欠く ) hidden potentials.
