Under the theme of “Deception,” the artist attempts to represent something vague, which may appear as something, but at the same time does not look like anything in particular—utilizing objects such as reflections in a mirror, which appears real but is not an actual object.
His recent works are a part of the “Painted” series. These works follow the reverse order of ordinary painting on the (assumed) back of glass or acrylic board. This procedure represents the action of “painted,” rather than “painting.”
The artist is also interested in the relationship between mind and body, of which the latter can act unintentionally or contrary to the mind. Based on this concept, he has been creating paintings and contemporary jewelry with motifs of the human body and skeleton.
He established Genta Yasui Art Laboratory in 2012. He moved to Keihoku, Kyoto City in 2015 to establish his own workshop, where he concentrates on his own art creations and commissioned work. Based on his belief that an artist can also utilize their talents outside of museums and galleries, he collaborates with companies to develop products utilizing his experience as an artist.
