AM recently visited with Yoskay Yamamoto (interviewed) at his Los Angeles studio. Taking time out of his marathon work sessions, he gave us a sneak preview into his coming show “Familiar Strangers” (teased) at LeBasse Projects which opens June 12th. The show is comprised of not only his signature “east meets west” brand of technique and imagery, but marks the expansion of Yoskay’s work into ceramics and clay modeling. We got to see a few of these intricate creations which are each hand molded/sanded. In case you didn’t know, Yoskay’s studio is also his place of residence and he let us into his room to catch a glimpse of what inspires him.
Check it all out after the jump.
