New Sculptures Popping Out of Paintings (+ More)


When we first came across Shintaro Ohata's sculptures popping out of paintings, we immediately fell in love. This Hiroshima, Japan-born artist not only has a unique style, placing his sculptures in front of his paintings, he also has the ability to create beautiful and dreamy stories.

Ohata is back with a new set of work called Polaris, which is named after the star that he says, "is always very bright and seems to be situated in the same place of the universe all the time." Yukari Art will have two booths at Art Fair Tokyo 2012 starting March 30, where it will present two solo shows, one by Shintaro Ohata and the other by Yodogawa-Technique. Released today is Ohata's online exhibition where you can see all of the works that will be exhibited at the fair in advance. Enjoy his new sculpture paintings as well as his more traditional paintings that all play into his theme of finding "a core like Polaris in [your] heart."

"For example, the girl with iPod (or some portable media player) in the city buzz is trying to find where her real heart is by listening to her favorite music" or "the girl on a platform trying to make her cold hands warm with a hot drink is feeling that she is alive through the warmth of it," he says.
