Artist's Portrait : Kazuma Eekman

Artist’s Portrait : Kazuma Eekman

In a quite cold dutch night I visited KAZUMA EEKMAN apartment (and studio) in west Rotterdam. He lives with his friend Lizar and their house is full of little artpieces, tools, puppets, coloured posters and memories of past trips. We talked about fake dollars, zwarte piet and dutch maccaroni. Kazuma joined KSAT project in 2010, for its 3rd edition about « Mind Trips » and he never left us after that. He’s half dutch and half japanese. You’ll see him in december again, participating to KSAT 7th issue exhibition, in Post Office, Rotterdam.

Our friend Kazuma Eekman is currently in Japan for a school exchange at Zokei University. He’s originary from Rotterdam and previously participated at KSAT#3 « Mind Trips » and KSAT#5 « Visions of the future » with his really cool illustrations. He decided to keep collaborating with KSAT from Asia too. He sent us a little glimpse of his latest work, that you can check here below. His arworks and the ones of Horikoshi Kota are now on their way to Europe to be exposed on the next KSAT#6 launch exhibition at the Maison du Portugal in Paris. We love his work and we suggest you to come on June 29th to see its piece and to discover lots of other interesting artists!

Sayônara!
