Yoskay Yamamoto Sculpture
Yoskay Yamamoto's new exhibition, 'Joke's On Me', will feature a series of sculptures based on iconic childhood characters, including the Stay-Puff man, Bart Simpson, Hello Kitty and a full collection of other sculptures. The work will be on display at LeBasse Projects Chinatown in LA until April 21, 2012.
"In his new body of work, Yamamoto will feature a series of sculptures based on iconic childhood characters. Three years in the making, ‘Jokes On Me’ is a conceptual project that explores current social issues through humor. Like a Sunday comic strip, Yamamoto’s sculptures are charming and nostalgic until after further inspection have a darker underlying message. This will be the artist’s first all sculpture exhibition, working in a range of mediums from plastic, resin, vinyl, and hand sculpted wood."
