BEST OF ITS2022-45_GK.jpg

ASOTO grew up in Japan practicing Nichiren-Shoshu. He was always surrounded by beautiful things such as Buddhist religious sculptures.However, his parents' relationship was feeble, and the house hold became unharmonious. His imagination was born in an environment where dissonance, made by negative emotions of humans, and prayers to God were always mixed. In Parsons MFA Fashion Design and Society, he devoted himself to Freud's and Nietzsche's philosophies, interweaving his own experience and exploring the affirmation of trauma and the value of imperfections. For him, art is a ritual that sublimates the pain of life into elegance.
