Aokid has been a spinning ninja in breakdance teams since high school and took part in the international breakdance competition in 2008. He majored in cinema at Tokyo Zokei University while starting to engage in performances, drawing, photography, writing, video, and events. He experiments with actions with the streets as their theme, regardless of format, from various perspectives. Inspired by the movie, he and his friends founded their own Water Boys group in high school. His 2016 solo exhibition, I live in the Town Where “Accidental Dance” Takes Place, at Guardian Garden, and 2017 solo performance, I All You World Play, at Yokohama ST Spot, both were reactions to his own assimilation of movies. A project he is presently working on, “aokid city,” proposes a “zoo” as public space for parties.
