Yuken Teruya art

Yuken Teruya is a japanese artist who uses everyday objects (Mc Donald's bags, cardboard toilet paper rolls, pizza boxes...), recycling them with a nice sense of meticulosity. Nothing is added, just transformed to drastically change their meanings. The results is very poetic.

As Teruya writes :
"Pizza Boxes, a McDonald's bag, Flags, Desserts and Toilet Paper rolls... when these items become artworks, they also easily become political, maybe because they are taken from daily life. But if you find unexpected shapes and colors from the toilet rolls, they become something else. (...) I feel that my work shouldn't only have the function of conveying the artist's message. My works have a right to simply be beautiful or offer any kind of attraction."
