About Artist

Kenji Aoki

Kenji Aoki’s creative endeavor started from studying drawings with his uncle, craft designer Mosuke Yoshitake, later enrolling at Kuwasawa Design School and learning the Bauhaus design philosophy, The Non Objective World conceived by Kazimir Malevich. Driven by the concept of “Zero,” art such as Zen and spiritual philosophy in the Orient called “no object,” Kenji began to seek “non-object” from tangible things through photography. Since 1991, Kenji has been active as a still-life photographer, and his delicate and robust style with a unique color sense and minimalism was highly regarded in the industry. In 2008, Kenji started working with NY based photographer agent, Michel Ash and moved to New York in 2010. Since then, he has photographed for renowned publications such as The New York Times Magazine and TIME. and awarded The New York Times Magazine Photographs (edited by Kathy Ryan) and American Photography
