    □ Biography
    Muroi was influenced by graffiti in the streets and started making work from an anti-cultural standpoint. He shapes his ideas by adding something to ready-made goods and the landscape. However they do not keep their original shape. He regards photographic records as his works and he is interested in what exists outside of Art. He also collects images from the internet and uses live performances and noise music in his work. Although he experienced a lot of self-conflict in his work for several years, the ways of thinking of the painter Jean Dubuffet and the artist Mike Kelley enabled him to find a new direction and key sites of reference, because they are also anti-cultural artists.


    □ Statement
    At first I treated my work as graffiti, not art. However, for others it was art. I hated art, because art gains freedom in the museum by possessing authority. In contrast, graffiti can be freely expressed by anyone without authority. While having that spirit, I learn a lot from outside the art world and made a new landscape. I regret that I can't see all the images in this world. Beautiful chaos is real art. I do not trust language. I do not trust rules either. Everything is ambiguous. All existing art is fake. I will produce works as real art. I am often looking for real art from outside myself. Culture is arrogant. Real art does not exist as a cultural asset. Everything is equivalent. Cultural assets and garbage on the street are equal. The whole can be art. Discrimination ought to end. On the other hand, I do not recognize everything as art. It is my artistic position to justify living in sarcasm and contradiction. I do not think more than necessary. I hope to live as a normal human being who lives a normal life. I am a very ordinary person.
