CONCEPT

Collage artist Yabiku Henrique Yudi,
who is attracting attention in
Tokyo’s art and fashion scene,

With a background in Brazilian and Japanese culture, Yabiku looks for inspiration in the beauty of incongruity and imperfections of today’s world.
As he expands his creative platform mainly through collages and installation art, Yabiku is currently considered one of Tokyo’s emerging artists.

The exhibition will showcase more than 30 new pieces of art, including three-dimensional pieces. The art works will be available for purchase along with limited goods made exclusively for the event.

Artist’s statement
One day, as I saw a viaduct, my eyes went straight to a deteriorated section with graffiti.
In a world where technology is constantly evolving and perfection is widely sought, the incongruity of reality intrigues beauty to me the most.
The mainstreet; stomping ground for homeless and bourgeoisies.
Cigarette butts abandoned next to “No Skateboarding” sign.
Young generation, exhausted, grasping to live in the “present”, where the world seeks to understand everything.
These kids discover their playground in this empty space, where inconsistency coexist within the city.
These incongruities show’s themselves as if they were arrangements of this world.
I was fascinated by the beauty of these unintentional misalignments that seem to come up consistently and naturally, without any deliberate intent in the mist of the finite nature of this world.
