Published by Admin Night Out Gallery on

ESOW has made a wall of new drawings for his last exhibition at Night Out Gallery.

STATEMENT :
‘Shopping Street Cruise’
There are many shopping streets in Asakusa, but it is fun just to wander around the shopping streets crowded with locals.
Pedaling your bicycle slowly, wander, wander, let’s go to that store again today for a cup of coffee, shall we?

「商店街クルーズ」
浅草にも沢山の商店街があるが、地元民で賑わう商店街はふらふらするだけで楽しい。
自転車をゆっくり漕いでふらふら、ふらふら、今日もあの店にコーヒー飲みに行くか。

BIOGRAPHY : 

Born in Tokyo, 1972. Started riding a skateboard at the age of 13, went to the United States at 17, found graffiti and created his own style influenced by the Japanese aesthetic concept of “Iki” that originated during the Edo era of Tokyo. Based out of Tokyo, Asakusa, his pieces have been presented not only in Japan, but also the United States, Europe, and Asia. The medium used for expression ranges broadly with a flexible approach, including but not limited to paper, walls, wood, and three dimensional forms. A member of the Japanese skate culture crew pioneer T19 since its inception, and also an artist of DYEZU-EXPERIMENT that left its mark in the history of Japanese graffiti. 

1972年、東京生まれ。13歳でスケートボードに乗り出し、17歳で渡米、グラフィティに出会い自らのルーツでもある江戸の粋に影響を受けた独自のスタイルを生み出す。浅草を拠点に国内はもとよりアメリカ、ヨーロッパ、アジアなどでも作品を発表している。表現の媒体は紙、壁、材木、立体など、幅広く柔軟。日本のスケートカルチャーにおけるパイオニア集団「T19」の創立時からのメンバーでもあり、日本のグラフィティ史にその功績を刻んだ「大図実験」の一員でもある。
