Born in 1980 in Kanagawa, Japan

Lives and works in Osaka, Japan

He spent his childhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and attended a high school in Barcelona, Spain. Graduated from the Department of Sculpture, College of Art at Nihon University.
He has produced ceramic sculptures, drawings, and paintings with motifs of ancient gods, pots, big cats, plants and pineapples. With the theme of “Fictional Ancient Artifacts”, artworks created by mixing images from different places/periods have a unique floating feeling as if they do not belong to anywhere. Koike says his interests are “the state where different elements coexist in harmony” or “the processing that changes the purpose and meaning of things”.
He held his solo exhibitions at
cadet capela (Paris, 2023), OMURO MUSEUM (Mie, 2021), AISHONANZUKA (Hong Kong, 2019, 16, 13) and TEZUKAYAMA GALLERY (Osaka, 2020, 17, 14) . Recently he has participated in a two-person exhibition at Aishonanzuka with Djordje Ozbolt (Hong Kong, 2023) and a group exhibitions at HAGD Contemporary (Aalborg, 2023).
