In Hirotoshi Itoh’s masterful hands, common rocks become strange, unsettling and humorous creations that will make you look twice.
Hirotoshi Itoh is a Japanese contemporary artist born in 1964. The family of Hirotoshi Itoh has been involved in stone work since 1879. Although Hirotoshi Ito was determined to eventually take over his family business, he entered the Metal Work Department of Tokyo University of the Arts. The bizarre and mind-bending stone sculptures of Hirotoshi Itoh really throws us for a loop. Surprisingly, it all starts in a riverbed in his neighborhood, where Hirotoshi Itoh picks up the small rocks he works with. Although most of us consider stone to be a cold, hard and unforgiving material, it is for Hirotoshi Ito the perfect canvas. He says that he would like to show others its big potential to express warmth and humor.
