Éi Kaneko (b.Tokyo, Japan) is a visual artist known for his multimedia drawings and works on paper using collage-based imagery and or appropriated images. His practice revolves around his fascination for sampling culture, and investigates the possibilites in re-working and re-inventing preexisting images that have been taken out of its original context. Focusing mainly on the humble pencil as his primary mark-making tool, Kaneko emphasizes the malleability of the image by intricately drawing the composed and or chosen image.
