Masao Kinoshita


Masao Kinoshita was born in Nagano in 1971. He graduated from the Department of Sculpture, Tokyo Zokei University. Kinoshita employs an artisan spirit to create sculptures of imaginary animals with human-like bodies. Based on clay prototypes, he makes molds for his sculptures out of FRP. He uses a chisel to refine the details. The sculpture is delicately finished with watercolors and colored pencils in order to convey the physicality of the muscles. Kinoshita’s solid craftsmanship and expressiveness have been highly praised by many, including the famous toy collector Teruhisa Kitahara.
