Yuji Kobayashi “New Matango”

This event has ended.

Drawing on his rare and distinguished modeling skills, Yuji Kobayashi has been continuously producing paper clay masks as a means to decorate the interior of New Matango, his bar situated in Hatsudai in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district. There are many admirers of these masks that actually sold out at last year’s exhibition, “Morning Star #01,” curated by Hiroki Tsukuda to raise charity funds for the Kumamoto Earthquake. Kobayashi’s works convey the strength of his creative practice where he has continued unflinchingly to pursue his own ideas and interests. The exhibition will feature approximately five new mask works by Kobayashi.

Born in 1973 in Aichi Prefecture, Kobayashi currently lives and works in Tokyo. After graduating from high school and working as a stage designer and illustrator, Kobayashi currently works as a bartender at his own bar, “New Matango.”
