Kaz Shirane


Internationally renowned artist Kaz Shirane (Masakazu Shirane) operates in spatial art and interior design.

Trained as an architect, Kaz Shirane explores the mirror as a medium, both with a bi-dimensional and tri-dimensional approach.

“My concept is the people. The designer is the viewer”, says Shirane. “I want to show the viewer a side of themselves they are not aware of, challenge their perception of truth and reality.”

His astonishing installations have been exhibited in various locations around the world such as USA, China, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, UAE, Bahrain, Japan and he was honoured to design the Tokyo Tower Top Deck.
