Kensuke Saito was born in 1978 in Tokyo, Japan. He was born with a severe hearing disability, and for this reason, he naturally depended a lot on visual information. By the time he was in middle school, he started drawing, as a form of visual communication. Later on, he majored in graphic design where he learned the skills to construct information into visual content. His detailed work is expressed mainly using ink. In 2012, he moved to Paris, then to Berlin in 2015. After his relocation to Europe, his artistic practice has been focused on drawing and painting.
I was born and raised in Japan. I was born hearing impaired, so I have always relied on visual information. Japanese manga and anime have had a great influence on me and helped me visualize my worldview. I would like to express the visual energy of painting in a unique way by colliding and fusing the dynamic power of graffiti and art that I can see from the city of Berlin, where I now live, with my own delicate Japanese sensibilities.
