June 18 - Happy Birthday, Yuken Teruya

Posted on June 18, 2018

Is this what you do with your old toilet paper rolls? 

I wish!

Japanese-born artist Yuken Teruya makes his art out of the unlikeliest of materials.

Like gift bags...

Or even a McDonald's bag!!  

These artworks obviously pull from intricate Japanese paper-cutting techniques (such as kirigami) - and just as obviously comment on consumer culture and on the nature of "trash."


Thank you, Mr. Teruya, and happy birthday!
