Akira Ishiguro (Born 1974), Japanese artist, his works start with the question of marble and stone materials, which have been valuable to high culture since the ancient times; most notably with the Greeks and Romans. The remnants of their grand architecture is often seen adorned with various marble statues and facades. The strength and beauty of marble has become a modern representation of luxury. It is a material of high status and aristocracy. For Akira, this past links to our current period as society develops and culture changes. The artist presents ideas from the hidden value of materials to the creation of alternative materials or the creation of artificial materials.
