Meet The Artist Creating Statement Sculptures From Old Clothing. 

It’s CULTED with your 60-second ART BLAST.

A sculptor? A designer? A crafter? Meet LA based artist Aiko Hachisuka, recognised for her bulbous, colourful sculptures made by collecting, printing on, and stitching together second-hand clothing.

Hachisuka told The New York Times: “each piece of clothing is like a mini-painting, and then I stitch them together like a puzzle.”

For their size and detail, it comes as no surprise that each carefully completed structure takes Hachisuka around 3 to 4 months to complete!

And, her sculptures in scale are similar to the size of a human body, aiming to play on its connection to furniture. Compared to her early couch pieces where you might see a pair of legs emerge from a cushion, her new work has now become increasingly abstract.

If you want to check out more of Hachisuka’s work, it is currently available to view in a special online presentation at Van Doren Waxter based in New York.

What do you think of Aiko Hachisuka’s sculptures?

Let us know below.
