Ken Kagami is a Tokyo-based multimedia artist whose body of work uses parody and appropriation to reframe pop culture imagery, thus expanding upon the tradition of pop art. Kagami reframes childhood iconography by distorting the construction of recognizable cartoons in manners wherein the form and character are apparent and familiar yet foreign. In this way, the artist plays with media consumption at present as well as with image reconstruction in a spirit similar to that of Cubism.
Ken Kagami (b. 1974) has exhibited at Misako & Rosen, Tokyo; Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery; Balice Hertling, Paris; The Green Gallery, Milwaukee, Bahamas Biennale, Detroit, Frieze London; NADA, Miami; Slow Culture, Los Angeles; and The Journal Gallery, Brooklyn.
