SUGE Syunichi

  • Born 1980 in Tokyo, Japan
  • Based in Tokyo, Japan

Suge Syunichi completed his post-graduate studies at Keio University in Media and Governance. He has been involved in the educational television program Pythagora Switch since his time studying under Sato Masahiko as an undergrad, exploring new forms of artistic expression that employ human perceptive faculties. Following a stint in product planning for children’s educational toys, Suge began teaching at Tama Art University. In addition to his involvement in video production for NHK’s television shorts 2355/0655 and concept planning/direction for exhibitions held at 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, he has received high accolades for his writing, which includes HENT-Economics (a work using comics and experimental forms to engage readers in learning about behavioral economics) and Kansatsu-no-Renshuu (Exercise in observation) (an account of Suge’s self-imposed routines.) Suge’s work effortlessly catches our eye and piques our curiosity with its arrangements of simple lines and shapes; those who encounter it will see the world in a whole new light.
