Nobuhito Nishigawara – Persona

I came across this exhibit by Nobuhito Nishigawara by chance walking through the Lower East Side. I don’t have any strong attachment to Asian art but the metal and terracotta animal sculpture I saw at Tally Beck captured my heart. The playful and quirky conception of each animal is nothing if not fresh and inspiring while the materials and basic iconography, on the other hand, reference historical art of both Japan and the ancient world.

  1. These are beautiful! They remind me of a type of traditional Indian tribal art made using bronze and the lost wax process.. very cool.
