Kazuhiro Hori


Painter Kazuhiro Hori creates cloyingly sweet, candy-coated dreamworlds inhabited by Japanese schoolgirls and bedeviled ephemera of their adolescence. Rendering evil stuffed animals, blood-colored gooey jam, and menacing toys with lifelike accuracy, his compositions directly reference traditional shunga (erotic Japanese prints) in order to explore pressing themes related to the mental health and abuse of Japan’s adolescent youth. 


Born in Tokyo, Hori graduated from Kanazawa College of Art and currently teaches contemporary art and drawing in Japan. Awarded the 2018 Beautiful Bizarre Magazine art prize, his work is celebrated internationally. Kazuhiro began showing with Arch Enemy Arts in 2017 after applying to our Spotlight Showcase, and he has appeared in more than ten shows with the gallery since.
