Genta Yasui

Under the theme of “things that deceive,” he paints ambiguous figurative works, using as materials things that look like something but are not, and things that look like real things but are not, as seen in a mirror.
In recent years, he has been creating a series of works called “Painted,” in which he reverses the drawing process by painting on the reverse side of glass or acrylic plates, turning the present progressive tense of “painting” into the past tense.
He also creates paintings and contemporary jewelry using the human body and skeleton as motifs.

In 2012, he established Yasui Genta Art Laboratory, and in 2015, he moved to Keihoku, Kyoto to set up his studio. He creates art works and sculptures to order, and also collaborates with companies to develop products utilizing his career as an artist, based on the belief that artists are not limited to art museums and galleries.
