Usugrow “Organic Contrast— Artworks of Usugrow”
This event has ended.
Usugrow started working as an artist in the early 90’s, while engaged in the underground music scene. Through art related to music, skate culture, and apparel design, Usugrow’s artistic activity steadily expanded worldwide. His work couples a dynamic and delicate pointillism and line work depicting a motif of skulls and flowers, with an original calligraphic style developed over years and overflowing with a feeling of statelessness. He takes skulls, which typically bear a negative connotation, and draws them from a different perspective as a thing of beauty; and he takes letters, something that people come in contact with routinely every day, and adds to them an extraordinary sensation and feeling of elation. Those who set foot in this space Usugrow creates may each find their own new sense of value and beauty in this feeling of discomfort.
Usugrow’s first solo exhibition in Japan in 10 ten years, this large-scale exhibition will allow a peek into the artist’s process, displaying rough sketches, in addition to nearly 40 artworks, including Usugrow’s signature pointillism style, as well as calligraphy, and a new ink brush style.
