"TOY CAR" YU NAGABA X AVANT ARTE


🚨 RELEASE 🚨

Yu NAGABA @kaerusensei releases "Toy Car" with @avant.arte


With an arm melodramatically thrown over her head, the sleek female figure is based on a recurring character in Yu’s two and three-dimensional artwork, and represents the artist’s first figurative sculpture edition. The only clue as to where she is reclining is the toy car placed that accompanies her.


Inspired by Yu’s endeavours in graphic design, the edition constitutes a modern, minimal reworking of motifs and references from art history, such as Matisse’s reclining nudes. Frosted white paint is applied in several layers to the cast bronze sculpture – finished with flashes of platinum leaf.

17.5cm x 26.6cm x 9.5cm
