Kohei Nawa
Artist/Director of SANDWICH Inc./Professor at Kyoto University of Art and Design

Born in 1975. Currently based in Kyoto. He graduated from Kyoto City University of Arts with a Ph.D. in Fine Art Sculpture in 2003. He establishes “SANDWICH,” a creative platform for production in 2009. He explores the potentiality of sculpture, working with beads, polyurethane foam, silicone oil, and a wide range of other technologies and materials, through his original concept “PixCell.” Nawa’s recent projects extend this exploration to architecture and performance, to create both space and art. In 2018, he exhibited his monumental sculpture “Throne” in Musée du Louvre, France, while “VESSEL” – a dance creation developed with French-Belgian choreographer Damien Jalet, is on world tour since 2015.
