Shintaro Miyake, born 1970 in Tokyo, Japan, is one of the shooting stars of the Japanese art scene. For his exhibitions he invents artificial characters, for which he designs costumes that he uses in his performances.
For Miyake, “To wear the character costume is expression of making portrait of myself. I feel something missing just showing a completed work”. His works are completed through his performance, and correspond thematically to the character. The drawings tend to reveal a child-like and playful way of seeing the world, especially his signature characters, with their long, thin arms and legs and elliptical heads.
