Lot Essay

“When Japanese people, for example, look at my work they always say it’s cute or it’s pop, it’s easy to see. But I’m hiding a lot of things behind that. Of course, if you want to see cute, it’s cute. I don’t think it’s cute. It’s about the more serious and dangerous things that are happening to the planet. For me, great art always seeks to change people’s minds or the way in which they view the world around them.” - Yuichi Hirako
