Painter – Shunsuke Naruse
At the National Art Center near Roppongi and Tokyo Midtown I found this fantastic statue called Painter by young artist Shunsuke Naruse (成瀬駿介) of Tama Art University (or Tamabi for short). Everytime I see it, it reminds me of the very famous manga/anime, Ghost in the Shell. I really like how the statue is both a simple hodge podge of parts and wood spray painted white, as well as the essential pose for a kick ass anime hero. This is another piece I wouldn’t mind owning!
