Shinsuke Aso was born and grew up in Gumma, Japan. He received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2004. He has worked closely with members of Gumma avant-garde art scene since he was a high school student. It was here that he experienced how contemporary art relates to people’s lives in rural Japan. Aso’s current project SAPC (Shinsuke Aso PostCard)” is a long term performance in which he creates postcards from found papers and cardboards and sells them for 25 cents each.
