The fragility and beauty of life is acutely reflected by our resident artist Shinichiro Inui through his latest release of one-off hand-painted bags made from a single piece of genuine leather - emphasizing craftsmanship of the highest order in this latest oeuvre of transforming art into luxury fashion.
Similar to how art world’s infamous British star Damien Hirst has utilized real animals and insects to comment on the cyclical nature of life and death, Shinichiro’s decision to paint on a single piece of cow leather which he then individually hand-crafted into luxury bags is a powerful statement on our obsession with status, wealth and our desire for all things covetable.
Only 5 of these rare, covetable and unique “It” bags infused with Shinichiro’s signature graffiti works are available for viewing and purchase at the Art & Design Concierge, Singapore.
Hailing from Osaka, Japan, Inui makes full use of a wide range of materials and techniques as he probes the issues of social networking problems in contemporary society and problems with consumeristic fashion and art.
Shinichiro Inui's fashion label, 'guernika', brings on a whole new introduction to wearable art. His range of bags, jackets, coats, t-shirts and more, are never two the same. Each hand-painted piece is a creation that fuses art with fashion.
