This is a Limited Edition just added three new pillows and giclee prints by Japan’s Yosuke Ueno to its international roster of artists. The designs include “Soul Free,” “White Soul,” and “Negative Never Again” (the latter of which, many speculate, would make a great vinyl toy…).
If you dare to enter the world of Japanese pop surrealist Yosuke Ueno, get ready for a strange and surreal adventure. Ueno will take you on a magical ride, introducing you to everyone from a giant baby swan to what looks like Rainbow Bright’s black sheep cousin. Weird, creepy but in a beautiful kind of way, Ueno’s art stands out for its interesting juxtapositions and hidden symbolism.
I’ve been really digging Ueno’s work since I got to see several paintings up close at Gallery1988SF (R.I.P.). The images chosen appear to translate really well to the pillow-as-canvas. Aside from the outstanding quality of TiaLE products, I like that you can choose from three pillow and print sizes (plus framing options). You can order online here (with free shipping in the UK). International shipping is kind of a chafe, so check the list of overseas stockists here. Nice. Click through for more imagery. Also: don’t forget about Yosuke Ueno and Jacub Gagnon’s Elements and Oddities show, opening at Thinkspace tomorrow! (Sneak preview here).
