Moto Waganari
  • 3D Printed Sculptures
  • Introduction

  • Bio

Moto Waganari’s dancers of have particularly graceful and dynamic bodies. Their extraordinarily fine structures seem to be caught in the middle of a dance. When their framework plays with the light, intricate shadows are created, which reveal magical moments full of movement and depth that unleash character. They multiply and recreate themselves, enticing the viewer through the performance of their bodies.

Art, architecture, and science come together in the works of Moto Waganari. 3D printers and modern sintering technology from the automotive and aviation industries are used to create these seemingly weightless sculptures. Using a fine laser, the thin structures are created and consolidated layer by layer. The artist uses these technologies to construct his artistic understanding of form, allowing him to challenge the viewer’s understanding of physicality. The figures he builds do not seem to carry weight, they seem to cover no surface, but rather they become a part of the space itself, connecting with it.
The style is minimalist, as we know it from the Far East, and at the same time full of expression. Despite their lightness, their movements convey strength and determination.

Moto Waganari, a pioneer of digital sculpture, is known for creating works that cannot be created by human hands. He is also a very gifted light artist. Which is why his works reveal their full effect when they are playing with their own shadows. The true essence of Waganari's work, and the vision that drove him in the creative process, is only revealed in the duality of sculpture and projected image. Waganari worked as an architect for several years before he started looking for new ways to express his creativity. The use of modern 3D printers enables him to combine his knowledge of structures and forms with his visual imagination. He recently sold one of his sculptures for 50,000 US dollars at the Miami Art Basel.
