Yosuke Ueno comes from Japan but might be from another planet. His themes are very cosmic and he's known as SpaceEgg77. His palette of colors is otherworldly and his themes range from Anne Frank looking down on earth from the heavens to cosmic ducks and magic mushrooms. Bizarre, surreal and thought provoking, conjuring images from another galaxy are words that come to mind.

“I am very careful in an important thing when I paint. It is a consciousness in which I couldn’t know what kind of work comes about, and I hope to challenge what I couldn’t handle in my mind. An adventurer makes his way because he didn’t know what there are, and a chemist never grasps the answer without any experiments. All the time I venture into my execution, I get off the point where I can’t look over the destination and then I seek my own brand-new beautiful way.”

CoproNason gallery presents this large body of work from Yosuke as he invades the Americas with his unusual and unique vision. He calls it “Japollo” so be sure to be there at the arrival.
