Preview: Yoskay Yamamoto "Joke's On Me" @ LeBasse Projects Chinatown, LA

Juxtapoz // Saturday, 24 Mar 2012

We have grown quite used to seeing the fine artworks of Los Angeles-based artist, that we forgot of the sculpture works of Yoskay Yamamoto. This new exhibition, Joke's On Me, will feature a series of sculptures based on iconic childhood characters, including the Stay-Puff man, Bart Simpson, Hello Kitty and a full collection of other sculptures. The work will be on display at LeBasse Projects Chinatown in Los Angeles starting tonight, March 24.

From LeBasse:

In his new body of work, Yamamoto will feature a series of sculptures based on iconic childhood characters. Three years in the making, ‘Jokes On Me’ is a conceptual project that explores current social issues through humor. Like a Sunday comic strip, Yamamoto’s sculptures are charming and nostalgic until after further inspection have a darker underlying message. This will be the artist’s first all sculpture exhibition, working in a range of mediums from plastic, resin, vinyl, and hand sculpted wood.
