Born in Kyoto in 1978, Teppei Kaneuji is an artist and stage designer. He studied at Kyoto City University of Arts and London’s Royal College of Art. His multimedia artworks (sculpture, painting, video) evolve out of collected everyday objects and aim to highlight the inherent relationship between images and materiality through sculptural systems. In addition to solo shows presented in Japan and worldwide, Teppei Kaneuji also creates stage sets and book covers. In this capacity, he e.g. designed the stage sets for We Can’t Understand Each Other Like Household Appliances (Owlspot Theater, 2011), Wakatta-san’s Cookie (Kanagawa Arts Theatre Kids Program, 2015) and tower (THEATER) (2017), for which he adapted his own video piece as a stage performance. Teppei Kaneuji is currently associate professor at Kyoto City University of Arts.
