YOSUKE UENO profile:
Spending his time between both NYC and Japan, artist Yosuke Ueno is enjoying life currently, fresh off a successful solo show at Mondo Bizarro Gallery (Rome, Italy). We’ve been big fans of Ueno’s work for some time, and we’re excited to showcase his new work, including “Alive” (shown above), during Art Basel this December in Miami as part of the Gen Art Vanguard Fair. His contribution to ‘Looking Glass’ is the first step in building towards a very important solo show we’ll be hosting for him summer 2010.

Ueno has shown the world over during the past decade including the Art London and AAF Amersterdam art fairs as well as The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (Tokyo, Japan) and the Shimonoseki Museum (Yamaguchi, Japan) and such esteemed galleries as the aforementioned Mondo Bizarro Gallery (Rome), La Luz De Jesus (Los Angeles), Roq La Rue (Seattle), Jonathan LeVine (New York), Copro/Nason (Santa Monica), 111 Minna (San Francisco), Anno Domini (San Jose) and several others throughout Japan.

“When I paint, I am making much of one thing. That is a feeling to try things that I wouldn’t handle with my mind. An adventurer makes his way without fully getting what lies ahead. A chemist never succeeds without experimentation. An artist should obey one’s flexible brain cells. Whenever I face up to work, I get going from a step where I can’t even imagine the outcome, and try to seek a fresh, beautiful ground.” – Yosuke Ueno
