Satoru Kitago is a renowned Japanese sculptor known for his figurative terracotta sculptures that blend traditional Japanese techniques with contemporary expression. Born in Tokyo in 1960, Kitago studied sculpture at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, where he later became a professor and served as Vice President.

Kitago's works are characterized by their unique form, which incorporates elements of realism and abstraction. His use of colors, particularly blue, light green, and white with a nostalgic, flour-like texture, adds to the distinctive charm of his pieces. In recent years, Kitago's works have received acclaim not only in Japan but also in China and other countries where he has exhibited.

The artist has held numerous solo exhibitions at art museums and galleries throughout Japan, showcasing his exceptional technique and the human charm that emanates from his works.
