Ataru Kozuru

Ataru Kozuru

Hometown: Hukuoka

Based in: Hukuoka

I was born in Japan, raised in Boston, U.S.A. Now based out of Japan.

I studied visual art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Tufts University receiving BFA and diploma in studio art.

In 3 dimensions, I mainly work in stone. Within a variety of stones such as marble, alabaster, calcite, limestone, travertine, and granite, I combine other mediums such as neon, Led, cast glass, aluminum, and stainless steel.

I have several themes in which I continue to work.
First is abstract figurative sculptures I continue to come back and create since I started carving in stone.
Another theme I have been working on is Cosmic Series such titles as Galaxy, Nebula, Stars, and so on.
The third one is the Imaginary landscape series.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

Every time I carve an original piece of stone sculpture,depending on the type of stone I carve such as marble or granite differs tremendously. So each time I adjust and allow according to the nature of the material in form and expressions. I work in series and with each piece, I challenge myself to go beyond one step further in creative expression.
