Ryuta Aoki was born in Niigata Prefecture Japan, in 1983. After graduating with a degree in Aerospace Engineering from Tokai University in 2007, he began creating artwork on his own and remains largely self taught. Based in Tokyo, he continues to reflect on our existence in the universe, creating an aesthetic that deals with themes such as the connections that can be found between the micro and macro worlds around us. He has exhibited regularly in Tokyo and in the last three years his work using Japanese paper has particularly been of note, garnering high praise from the arts community.

“The Miracle of Living Here
In the desert, on a beach, in a snowy field, wrapped in the starry sky.
New life is breathed into what was once dull sensation. In the silence of space and time
I feel the delight of being alive.
In this moment, I realize the impact of what it means to be alive here now.
The immediacy and reality of the connection I feel to my life, the close contact with death, and the thanks I have for food and air make my whole body numb.
My chest tightens and I am hot to the touch.
These thoughts can not be left unexpressed.
This is not artistic expression.
This is not an occupation or a calling.
It is how a living being expresses wonder for its own life.
In the small world of an atom,
The human world, overflowing with life, and
even further, in the vast universe,
I was born this size, and I feel the miracle of living here on earth.”
