Who is Otani Workshop?

Otani Workshop is not the name of an organisation but a single artist, whose real name is Shigeru Otani. He established the now famous name in 2005. He shot to fame in 2010 when fellow Japanese icon Takashi Murkami discovered his creations in Tokyo.

Otani Workshop created Tanilla in 2022. The sharp-fanged monster sculpture with eyes that look like openings instantly became a hit. The artist’s other works include bulging heads, anthropomorphic vases, children and animals — all of which are inspired by nature.
