As a keen observer of today’s society, artist Wataru Komachi‘s artistic vocabulary is best described as a motley mash-up of topics, opinions, symbols and elements, and as such, both visually dazzling and challenging. In his latest showcase, evocatively called I Don’t Want To Grow Up, the Japanese artist once again presents a colourful multi-disciplinary installation that occupies the entirety of Clear Edition Gallery in Tokyo‘s Roppongi district. The show is curated by gallery owner Yoichi Nakamuta and adds a new chapter to Komachi’s ongoing artistic narrative of life. Part of a diptych – part two will focus on Komachi’s furniture designs and screen prints and opens on May 11 – it features installations made from the artist’s early fashion designs and paintings that reveal a spectrum of astute observations [on through Apr 21]. The show comes with merchandise that has been especially produced for the occasion. Location: Clear Edition & Gallery, 7-18-8 Roppongi (Roppongi).
