"I always start new work without any detailed designs. My hope is for a piece to complete itself beyond my imagination. I sometimes say that artists are parallel to scientists. Scientists have no way of knowing the result of an experiment beforehand. The same can be said about creating art. It is no wonder then that brains and instruments of thought are another prominent symbol. My belief is that though brains may be restricted in terms of size and quantity, they are wondrous in that the possibilities are limitless. It is the most supreme belonging a human being can possess. Our brains decide the behavior, character and personality of each individual, denoting the utmost depths of our identity." - Yosuke Ueno
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Yosuke Ueno & 1xRUN
Yosuke Ueno started to create original characters and draw them since early childhood, and learned his way to paint by himself. His first solo show was held in Yamaguchi, Japa when he was sixteen, 1994.
Also known as a specialist of symbolism and innocence, sometimes four colors like red, green, yellow, and blue appear in his works. These colors represent the four bases of DNA: adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine, that is, A, T, G and C-molecular elements that all animate beings share. Yosuke paints these colors and A, T, G and C with a message that all animate beings should have equal worth.
