1959年就学于大阪美术学校时,参与第8届具体美术展的展出。其后便加入具体美术协会直到协会解散为止。向井作品的特色为集聚的符号,有时候甚至会将自己身体都淹没其中。第10届具体展(1961)、具体Pinacotheca的个展(1962)、爵士咖啡厅“Check”的全馆符号化(1966)等,持续至今的装置艺术形式于创作初期即已确立。 1969 年发生将所有的平面作品烧毁的事件等,总是连接结时代潮流的态度受到瞩目。纽约古根汉美术馆具体回顾展(2013)、威尼斯福图尼宫(2015)的创作使人记忆犹新。 2017年,为纽约改装新开幕的Louis Vuitton苏活店,创作室内装置(彼得‧马里诺策划),而受到多方瞩目。
