SOLO EXHIBITION BY YU NAGABA
FREE ART SPACE, KUALA LUMPUR
MARCH 10 – APRIL 05, 2017
‘A Line’ welcomes Yu Nagaba, one of the most poplar artists in Japan (Tokyo) to KL for the first time.
The simple appearance of his works draw attention to Tokyo where there is a diverse culture and also point to this era where individuality is claimed by adding something different from others. Pop icons from different eras and various genres, chosen from the artist’s point of view are drawn with a single line extracted over time. They maintain a flat perspective which gives you a different viewpoint from the existing image. The resulting combination of pop motifs and sophisticated lines is very approachable allowing for his practice to grab the attention and hearts of many people through the richness of the variations of the scenes in his drawings.Through Nagaba’s “Lines” viewers are presented with Japan’s present.
