Born in 1977 in Ishikawa, Japan and lives in London. He received his BFA from the University of East London and his MFA from the Slade School of Art at University College, London. Sawa’s video installations present intimate observations in transitory landscapes, familiar surroundings often inhabited by anoetic forms. His use of animation, sharp attention to lighting, and meticulously composed shots, are amalgamated into layered works. Sawa has the ability to manipulate his imagination into a tangible dimension that sits between the parallel languages of sculpture and film.
