WABISABI “FLESH AND BLOOD”

HAPPENINGText: Yukino Kotake

Mr. Sabi said “I had been working on graphics with straight and sharp lines before but I decided to show my deep mind and favorite things with curved lines”. At first he debated with himself, if those things would be accepted or not. He seems to come up with a lot of new ideas to be in a world where no one wanted to be. He told me that he has been thinking to make the “Flesh And Blood” graphics into 3D which might help us enjoy it more and more.

Have you noticed that each of the graphic works has words such as “heart” “syndrome” “kiss” “skin”. All of them are related to the human body.

All of the alphabets are made as fonts and graphics, and are composed with mixing them. Sabi said “somehow all of them can be matched.” As he said every word is matched nicely and make a comfortable composition of graphics. It might be because they are made with crooked lines such as our flexible internal organs.

How do you feel with their “Flesh And Blood”? Debate deeply? Or simply attracted?

They want us to feel simply cool! Nice! Graphics might be the thing that have the potential to make us fall in love at the first sight. I might be the one person who is falling in love with their works, will continuously look for their ideas and their original world-view with marvelous elements.
