Japanese artist, Kenshi Kondo, will be exhibiting for the first time in his art career, here in Australia at Studio B Gallery with his exhibition 'made in (N)'. His work references the pop art of the 60's, the street art of the 80's and features iconic imagery and faces through to recent times.
"I have lived in Japan since I was born and l feel that the value of art in Japan is lower than in other countries. In Australia, I guess that art is a part of people's usual life. That's why I decided to hold my first exhibition in Australia where art is regarded highly.
I have engaged in art in different forms since I was in my youth and have been immersed and influenced by the 1960s and 1980s street art as a fashion designer and framer. My this works are made from cloth and sewn by sawing machine using my experience and techniques as a fashion designer.
I'd like you to just enjoy the combination of different pictures, colors, material and patterns."
