Artist Bio
John Koga is a Honolulu-based sculptor and painter whose work ranges from small paintings to large sculptures and environmental installations. His work is featured in both museum and private collections and exhibited globally. Koga earned an MFA in ceramics and sculpture from the University of Hawaii and studied sculpture in Pietrasanta, Italy. He’s known for his abstract modernist aesthetic that conveys a sense of serenity, balance, and space inspired by the artists Isamu Noguchi, Saturo Abe, and Tadashi Sato. Koga has received several awards from the Honolulu Museum of Art and the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. Through his artwork, Koga strives to share the beauty of natural elements, including stone, the ocean, and the sky. Known for his work in marble and plaster, he was a natural fit to sculpt new furniture and lighting designs in Plasterglass, created in the PUCCI mannequin factory in Manhattan. He joined RALPH PUCCI in 2007.
