KOTA EZAWA BIO

Kota Ezawa produces animated videos, slide projections, lightboxes, collages, and prints that recreate images and events from recent history and popular culture. Through a labor-intensive process that involves the production of hundreds of drawings, Ezawa translates charged events, such as the assassinations of Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy, into simplified animations.

 

 

I feel that I’m in the business of making moving paintings more than making videos with a beginning and an end.
— Kota Ezawa
