・ Writer profile

Go Yayanagi

After dropping out of college, he moved to São Paulo, Brazil, where he engaged in various artistic activities. After traveling around the world, he moved to Paris and studied under SW Hater, a master of copperplate prints. Many times in international settings, including the 11th Sao Paulo Biennale (Brazil, 1957), the 2nd Frechen International Print Biennale (West Germany, 1972), and the 5th British International Print Biennale (1976). Announced the work. For Go Yayanagi, art is not something that sits in an awe-inspiring space, but something that should be indistinguishable in every living space. The medium of production is diverse, ranging from prints, oil paintings, mosaics, stained glass to textiles, fashion and design. With bold color composition, vivid coloring without unnecessary shadows, bright eroticism and humor, the world of the times is visualized like a puzzle. The abundant exoticism carved into the body at a young age embodied a deterritory without reason, far ahead of the tide of the world.
