Japanese artist Yusuke Asai is back with another mesmerizing, large-scale installation. But instead of working with mud like we've seen before, he takes a more conventional approach and paints on an unusually-shaped canvas. It's the focus of his exhibition titled Creating Here that's now showing at the Arataniurano Gallery in Tokyo.
Asai's work reaches from the ceiling to the floor with arched spaces in the middle that visitors can walk under and around. Bright blue hues fill the abstract, web-like shape that features floral and animal motifs in its design. Looking closely at the artist's brilliant detail, we see creatures like long-necked birds with their beaks wide open, and they're adorned and surrounded by similarly-decorated leaves.
Asai has taken over the gallery and created a vibrant, busy world that you'll want to gaze at for a long time. If you're local to Tokyo, Creating Here is up until December 20 of this year.
