Neil Hamamoto

JO-HS Residency January 2023

Neil Hamamoto is a conceptual artist making works in sculpture, painting, photography and installation. He is best known for his idiosyncratic sculptures made of wood, metal and prefabricated objects. His most recent works and projects recontextualize commercially manufactured objects to invoke the feeling of newness. By reviving the identity of outdated objects, Hamamoto's work offers a glimpse of the future present through a nostalgic lens and questions the worth of innovation.
