Masayoshi Suzuki Gallery | Nagoya Design Week
I’m liking all these regional artists and designers because my posts are usually very Tokyo-centric. So it’s been incredibly fun to discover talent outside of the big metropolis. Masayoshi Suzuki Gallery, who made a showing at Nagoya Design Week, represents artists based in the Nagoya area who have adapted natural objects as their primary media, or who derive inspiration from nature. I love all these organic-looking shapes that are largely abstract but possess a warm familiarity.
