Kensuke Koike – The End of the World

6 May 2022

Kensuke Koike is a visual artist born in Nagoya, Japan, in 1980. Koike studied visual arts in Venice and has collaborated with several art galleries. He works mainly on collages, from the traditional photo collage to a three dimensional collage in motion. The symbolic image he created for FFF 2012 shows the new world arisen after the end of the world as we know it. In fact, it follows up the story of the FFF 2012 opening song, also animated by Koike, in which we saw the protagonist, an ape man, arrive in the new world like a new Ulysses. In this year’s symbolic image, we see the ape man after he has adapted to a new reality.
