A collaboration revealed by the artist on his Instagram account !
Yoskay Yamamoto has imposed himself on the art toy scene with delicacy and poetry as evidenced by his many pieces, including Clear Sideways. Inspired by West Coast culture, Yoskay Yamamoto doesn't hesitate to bring in its very particular palette. However for his new figurine, the suspense is whole. Presented on Instagram, this Moon figurine is shown raw, just carved. Maybe it will be ceramic, monochrome ? For this we will have to monitor his posts carefully, as well as those of Giant Robot.
Shop located in Los Angeles, Giant Robot specializes in Asian pop culture. In addition, the brand has GR2, a gallery where many international artists are exhibited such as Katsuya Terada, Luke Chueh and of course Yoskay Yamamoto. Besides, it's from this double culture (Japanese and American) that Yoskay Yamamoto draws the complexity and softness of his figurines. With this new interpretation of Moon, the artist explores a more retro facet with a character in a suit and bowler hat. If no date, price or quantity has been revealed, there is no doubt that the impatience is real. In the meantime we let you discover in more detail the work of Yoskay Yamamoto.
