Playful Interactions: Art by Kazuki Guzman

Chilean-Japanese artist Kazuki Guzman takes everyday objects and infuses them with his own blend of craft and humor. From his intricate needlework with bananas to his tiny precision sculpture made from a piece of gum and its wrapper, the overriding sensibility is of a creative mind at play.

“I enjoy taking jokes seriously, until they become ‘art’ in one way or another. My artworks are often the accidental outcome of playful interactions between the materials and myself.” – Kazuki Guzman 1
