Profile

Since publishing her photography book “SUN,” Rei Sato has held a series of solo exhibitions in New York, Singapore, and Tokyo. Her signature style sees her print photos onto canvas and then paint over them with images that not only change the scenery but infuse it with the warmth of her effervescent personality. Recently, she has also been active as a VJ and receives invitations to local events at an almost weekly rate.

In 2010, Sato undertook artistic direction for the production of Prokofiev’s classic, Peter and the Wolf, for Works & Process at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Rei Sato currently lives and works in Taiwan.
