Kimura was born in Tokyo in 1980 and grew up in Miyagi. Finished a master’s program at Tama Art University. In the cultural anthropology field, there is a word called “外臓(Gaizo)” and it means “the surrounding environment is the inverted side of your own body”. From the point of view of “Gaizo”, he tries to connect local food cultures and the natural environment that surrounds us with his own creations and tries to grasp the characteristics including plasticity that connotes sculpting as a surrounding environment which includes society aspects with his creation.
