Japanese award winning artist Yuki Matsueda certainly knows how to think outside-of-the-box. His art, featuring everyday objects, look as though parts of them are attempting to break free! Egg yolk, puzzle pieces and the suits of playing cards are no match for the artist who retains ultimate control.
I enjoy how there's a sense of movement to each piece. While simple, Matsueda's… Continue
