About

 

Inagaki was born in a neighboring prefecture of Tokyo in 1998, like many young people in Japan, he too was influenced by Westernization. In his late teens to early twenties, driven by a fascination with American culture, he turned to graffiti in Tokyo—a form of personal exploration and rebellion. This path led him into entirely new artistic realms, gradually shifting his focus from destruction to creation.

His experiences with graffiti and acts of vandalism have shaped his themes, centered around the tensions, stresses, liberation, and gentrification pervasive in urban life.

His artwork, depicting the daily lives of urban youth, animals, and items, is often cloaked in black, concealing regional and cultural specificity, evoking a sense of anonymity.

Influenced by the ambiguous relationship between urban and natural environments, he explores the intermediate identity of inorganic matter and organic matter.
