Aida Makoto

Born in Niigata in 1965. Completed a master's course at Tokyo University of the Arts in 1991. While enrolled in the school, Aida began publishing a coterie magazine called Shiro Kuro with Ozawa Tsuyoshi, Kato Go and others. In 1993, Aida received attention for a parody of Katsushika Hokusai, and became widely known for sensational works that expressed opposition to war, violence, and conventional wisdom. He is involved in a diverse range of activities, including creating photographs, sculptures, performances, installations, novels, manga, and urban plans. Aida is also part of "The Group 1965", formed by a group of artists who were born in 1965. He has aroused controversy with a style that is sharply critical of society and history.
