The Work of Natsuki Otani

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 24, 2012
'I have a style that is best described in colour and realised in detailed design. Bold vibrant colour forms the basis of a working practice that seeks to unite dreams and reality.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 26, 2012
We were very excited to see the title of Ian Francis' newest exhibition, 10,000 Years From Now. Obviously, his work resonates with this title perfectly.
