HIRO SUGIYAMA / ENLIGHTENMENT

This is a unique piece that shows a woman's body deformed in a strange curve. This is an eerie and unforgettable piece -- once you lay eyes on it, you won't soon forget it. Her body is twisted in a way that suggests a mollusc, with a pop-like print covering her. There is something nostalgic and familiar about this image, yet at the same time it is super exciting and new. I really like this piece.
I'm looking forward to seeing what the artist brings us in the future.
