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.
