Yosuke Ueno before & after…

Yosuke Ueno just sent us an amazing before & after set for his new work “Positive-E no.3”

Simply stunning. Love to see an artist’s process, especially from a rough drawing to the final piece. Ueno continues to excel at a rapid pace with this new work. So excited for our solo show with him next year, I can’t even express it in words. Just love his work. Ueno has a great feature in the new issue of Hi Fructose, so be sure to check that out.

Two great works from Ueno are currently on hand, and remember we’ve got a 25% discount in place currently on all available inventory through next week. Don’t sleep on that deal!
