Blurring the line between art and design, Yuki Matsueda’s pop art sculptures transmute the quotidian into enigmatic works.
Ahead of his exhibition at the Frederick Harris Gallery that runs through February 4, the artist shares some of his inspirations and insights.
Moment I realized I wanted to become an artist.
When I was 20 years old. In college, all the aspiring artists around me—the other students and teaching assistants—really had an effect on me.
What I would tell my 20-year-old self.
Go and travel the world right now.
My perfect creative environment.
Somewhere not too hot and not too cold where I can reach a calm state of mind. I’d really like to find an old storehouse or workshop and renovate it into my own studio.
Artist, living or dead, I’d most like to share a meal with.
Andy Warhol or Shigeo Fukuda.
