KATSU is a Japanese – American new media artist working out of New York City. His works involve technology, public intervention and include commentary on commercialism, privacy and digital culture. As a result, his practice includes drone painting, sculpture, digital media, conceptual works, and crypto art.  His visual and digital projects question notions of reality, fiction, and ‘graffiti,’ by conceptually integrating ideas of vandalism with commercialism and technology. KATSU was a research fellow with Free Art and Technology Lab, a collective of creative technologists and hacker artists (2007-2015). Recent solo exhibitions include; DOT at The Hole, New York City (2020); DRONE at Diane Rosenstein Gallery, Los Angeles (2018), Memory Foam at The Hole, New York City (2018); AI Criminals at an unknown location, San Francisco (2017); and Remember the Future at The Hole, New York City (2015). He was included in Beyond The Streets (curated by Roger Gastman) in Los Angeles, CA (2018). In 2015 he created Dronescape Summer for Coney Art Walls (curated by Joseph J. Sitt and Jeffrey Deitch), and was included in Born in the Streets – Graffiti at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris, France (2009-10). He earned his BFA from Parsons School of Design, NY (2005). The artist works between Brooklyn, NY and San Francisco, CA. His work has been written about in publications from Wired to the New York Times.
