The artist will be present at the shop from 4pm to 7pm on the first day, Friday, September 22nd. We welcome you to please come and visit.

― From the introduction at GALLERY KOYANAGI for "Object Lessons" ―

Influenced by Surrealism, which he learned about through the writings of a Surrealist Tatsuhiko Shibusawa (1928–1987), Yuasa mimics himself as “Yebosi Yuasa (1924–62),” a fictional painter born in the Taisho era (1912–26), and creates works that celebrate the atmosphere of the paintings of the past surrealistic creators such as Ichiro Fukuzawa and Kikuji Yamashita. The paintings thus created are applied to the fictional Yebosi Yuasa’s painting career, disguising the artist’s life as it might have existed at the time.
