ABOUT HAJIME KINOKO:

Rope artist, contemporary artist, nawashi, Photographer. Born October 22, 1977, blood type B.

At Eagle Leather, we like to refer to him as the rockstar of shibari: Kinoko takes classic kinbaku concepts and twists and contorts them in a whole new way, creating something unique that has rarely been seen before. He’s young, dynamic, free, forward thinking, and achingly fucking cool.

He’ll do anything and everything in the name of this art form in which he is so incredibly talented, and that’s why we knew we just had to get him over to Australia to perform at FANTASTIC: THE PARTY and present these three classes. He ties people. He ties nature. He ties things. If it can be tied, he’s tied it (yep, whatever you can think of – including roast pork in case anyone was wondering!)

Kinoko began tying in 2001, and by 2006 he began to perform locally in Japan. By 2010 this rising star began to present workshops and performances internationally. He regularly performs and presents workshops in Japan and has also toured the world, showcasing his art form to avid followers in Paris, London, Munich, Berlin, Petersburg, Gijon, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Rome, Vancouver, Dallas, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Taipei and Taichung. He’s also had his work shown on multiple televised broadcasts and documentaries for CNN, AFPBB and VICE, as well as done installations for fashion brands such as DIESEL and CHRISTIAN DADA. He has also released multiple DVDs and books to showcase his shibari, and even has his own range of stockings!

In recent years he has expanded his talents into photography and direction of his work, so that can control the artistic process start to finish.
