About Sayaka

Sayaka Ganz was born in Yokohama and identifies a strong Japanese influence in her work, even though she grew up in several different countries. During her BFA studies at Indiana University Bloomington she explored various media, from ceramics to printmaking, before determining sculpture and welding as her expressive vehicles of choice.

Her fascination with animals in movement permeates this collection. “When you look at the piece from the distance you see the form of the horse galloping, but when you get up close you start to see that individual objects were used”, she writes.

Sayaka is currently based in Indiana, where she teaches drawing and design at IU-Purdue University Fort Wayne in Indiana and welds figures from steel, of humans and other animals.

Sayaka is an AAD guest curator

I think her artwork is amazing, I am amazed by her skill and vision.

I love your work... but it's been in the number 1 slot for over a year now... surely you must have an election team as good as Obama's with an army of voters to keep the images in that location for so long.
