Anton Kusters: Yakuza

AO Vertical Art Space, Hong Kong


“It’s hard. It’s scary. I’m slowly learning, little by little trying to understand this Japanese way. But it feels like I’ll never fully comprehend.”
– Anton Kusters

Anton Kusters was born in Belgium in 1974. After obtaining a Master’s degree in Political Philosophy at the University of Louvain, he studied Photography at STUK and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hasselt, Belgium. In 2001 he started a web and graphic design company. Anton Kusters’ desire to collaborate with other artists and helping young talent resulted in Burn Magazine, a magazine dedicated to the Emerging Photographer Grant he founded together with David Alan Harvey. Currently Kusters is working on a long term conceptual project to never forget the Holocaust and its heavens above, and on a documentary project about finding where one belongs.
