Yumiko Kayukawa returns to 1xRUN on Wednesday with a new print titled Appetite plus 5 original paintings will be on sale as well.
Yumiko Kayukawa grew up in the small town of Naie in Hokkaido, Japan. In these pristine, natural surroundings, she found her love of animals and nature which later became an important theme of her work. As she grew up, Yumiko drew inspirations from American pop culture such as Rock & Roll, film and fashion. These influences are fused with modern and traditional Japanese motifs to create her unique style.
"This piece was presented for a show “Rock You In a Tatami Room” in 2011. It wasn’t a theme show, so I created pieces with just represented what I was feeling at the time.
As I love animals and wildlife, how they kill to survive is a passionate subject for me. Even a beautiful crane fights to live. It’s beautiful to me, just like they are dancing." - Yumiko Kayukawa
