Éi Kaneko (b. 1983, Tokyo, Japan) creates graphite renderings of collages or found and appropriated images. While the collage drawings reassemble and challenge the eye to a new composition and context, the still images are often appropriated from screenshots of online videos or films. The interplay of these two styles investigate the possibilities of image making, of which one of the most basic tools and medium is applied. The monochromatic palette of graphite, and the time consuming process of drawing, give the image a depth no longer conveyed by the digital images, which are over-abundantly available and quickly digested. Currently lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.
