""I am skeptical of logical thinking. I “deconstruct” phenomena through images, music, performance. I catch things by skin sensation. I would like to be "the skin of the universe" and its nerve center." W.K.
Wataru Kasahara was born in 1968 in Gunma (Japan). He lives and works in Tokyo. Figure of the international noise and DIY scene under his different aliases (Embudagonn 108, Nobu ...), Wataru Kasahara is developing in parallel to his musical activities a tormented graphic production, close to a certain form of outsider art.
With ink or graphite, his abundant drawings are populated by degenerate monsters frantically copulating with humans, in a decorum made of truncated bodies, raw flesh, exposed organs, secretions, excretions and other cabalistic signs."
