Yukinori Dehara “Satoshi – The Last Salaryman”
2062 Sawtelle Blvd. Los Angeles CA 90025
Giant Robot is proud to host Satoshi – The Last Salaryman – clay sculptures by Yukinori Dehara.
The Salaryman in Japan, is an underpaid and understated workforce who work long hours and have forged a lifestyle that is strongly responsible for the economic miracle of post World War 2 Japan. Today they wander the streets after their long day, drinking and frolicking until they head home to their family, only to face the same thing the following day. Satoshi is this person but has a friend, a beast named Morlin.
We’ll be sure to feature clay sculptures and more from Yukinori Dehara.
We’ve featured Japanese artist, Yukinori Dehara annually and his exhibitions range from being touching to grotesque. Yet like most artists, he has a deep ideology behind his pieces although to the casual observer, they look like fun.
