Yoskay Yamamoto’s much anticipated show of new sculptural works opens this Saturday, March 24th at LeBasse Projects Chinatown, LA location. Entitled Jokes on Me… Yamamoto’s first all-sculpture exhibition explores social issues through humor. Much of the work is based on iconic childhood characters (like this Hello Kitty), and the medium varies between plastic, resin, vinyl and hand-sculpted wood.
Anyway, I love iconic childhood characters as much as the next pop culture art blogger, but Yoskay Yamamoto’s entirely original creations are even more wonderful. Photographer Carlos Gonzalez took these atmospheric photos when he visited the artist’s studio for a preview. There’s more gorgeousness to be found over at Arrested Motion.
