Kenji Toki (b. 1969) explores modern expressions of an ancient art form. In addition to using traditional lacquer (urushi) techniques, the artist experiments with carbon fibre as well as computer-aided design and photography, linking old and new concepts beyond time and space and bringing together modern digital technology and time-honored craftsmanship.Toki is a multiple degree graduate from the Kyoto City University of Arts in the Department of Crafts - Urushi Lacquering, and he is the winner of numerous awards, prizes and scholarships. The artist has exhibited across Japan and his work is in the public collections of many international museums including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
